Shoulder surgery

Has anyone here had shoulder surgery? Had one 5 years ago but made things much worse. Lots of daily pain. Been through PT, strengthening, learning about psychological factors, etc but no progress. Considering a 2nd surgery to attempt to fix it. Any similar experiences?

    Have you tried heavy strength training? There are tons of machines the will isolate all muscles that DONT cause the pain. Target those and lift the heaviest you can 3 times. In a few months your surrounding muscles will be strong enough where you won't notice any pain. Plus you'll be buff!

      Then why don't your muscles support the pain? If you did it right they would be strong enough

      Maybe a personal trainer would be more effective to help you do it right? Surgery is too drastic

      Heavy strength training? How can you recommend something without an examination? Endurance could be more important. Maybe his range of motion is wrong. Have you seen his MRI?

      Why the fuck would anyone give specific advice on blind. bGjw55, don't listen to t-mobile.

    What was the first surgery for? Just shoulder surgery is too vague

    All I can say is that endless surgery could make it worse and worse and worse. I have my own chronic condition and what I've learned as that you really need to do your own research and find a shoulder expert. I mean, someone who has written papers or books on the subject. Not just any muscular skeleton doctor.

    Good luck.

      Yes I’ve talked to the best I could find in the world. I don’t want to make it worse with more surgery.
