Hi @marklg57, welcome to Connect. You may notice that I moved your discussion and combined it with an existing discussion also titled Rotator Cuff Surgery.

@marklg57, this hits a bit close to home for me as well as I had my rotator cuff repaired on June 15th. I did no PT for 6 weeks while it healed and started a very mundane PT routine for 3-4 weeks. It wasn't until the 12 week mark that I was really let loose to rehab the muscles around the shoulder. I have made considerable gains in the past few weeks, but the pain is still there for me as well. I can't tell if it is because of the movement, the muscles getting activated for the first time in months or the general tightness of everything in the shoulder. I have not experienced severe pain, other than when I moved it on accident in the initial 6-week period. I have noticed that I can really get my arm moving after I am done with my exercises but it tightens up pretty quickly afterwards.

@marklg57, what sort of PT exercises or stretches do they have you doing?

I'm doing a lot of stretching exercises, ie- wall slides, using stretching bands, shoulder exercises and exercises using a dowel
