Chef Bruz. It depends on the surgeon . In my case both the supraspinatus and the infraspinatus were completely ruptured, detached from the bone, and the tendons had retracted. The op and the recovery were as close to painless as you could wish. Certainly nothing that the odd paracetamol couldn't handle. The worst pain is now, some two months after surgery, which I assume is the muscles and nerves sorting themselves out. Again, standard painkillers once or twice a day are sufficient. I agree with the motion though. It is little better than before the op, but I'm told by both the surgeon and the physio that it will come back totally over a matter of months. I'm waiting for the revelation.
