After a frozen shoulder and rotator cuff surgery I have so much pain under my shoulder blades that I can’t lean back in a soft chair or lie comfortably on my back in bed. Anyone out there have a Dr for this? Totally frustrated!
Hello @inpaininmi. I am sorry to hear about your shoulder pain. I am scheduled for a shoulder surgery myself coming up soon from an impinged nerve as well as a calcific tendonopathy. The pain I experience is movement based and is also located what feels like right under my shoulder blade. However, I have been told it is not near as serious or extensive as a rotator cuff surgery.
@inpaininmi, has your current physician or surgeon offered any explanation for the continued pain? Are you considering a second opinion?
