Has anyone had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff? I have to go under the knife after turkey day. It is probably from trying to impress myself on the bench press. What can I expect as far as recovery? Also are you limited to what you do know?

I nearly tore off my right-side infraspanatus doing stupid shit on the bench, post-cycle.

They reattached it to the bone and shaved the acromium (sp) when they were in there. They told me to keep it in a sling and to NOT MOVE it for like 4 weeks after the surgery. After it came outta the sling, it was literally locked up. I couldn't even reach my mouth to brush my teeth. Rehabilitation was a BITCH - very slow and disappointing. But - I stuck with it. After about 6 months I went into the gym. I got brave and thought I'd bench press. I layed down and grabbed the bar (with no weights) to warm up. It took all I had to just get a couple of reps!! Talk about frustrating!

Again - I just stuck with it and progressed SLOWLY.

END RESULT: I've FAR EXCEEDED the amount of weight I benched pre-surgery!!

Just be smart about your recovery and as Winston Churchill said - Never, Never, Never, Never, Never Give Up!!

The 2 biggest factors concerning your recovery are:
1.) what they have to do when they are in there.
2.) the surgeon

In reagrds to what they have to do; what size and what muscle(s) is your tear? Also are you getting arthroscopic, mini-open, or open? This will determine how long you are in a sling for and how fast they can progress the rehab.

xcel, I remember you mentioning your shoulder surgery some time back. You're motivation enough for me to get back at it when I can. I figure I will train legs (limited to presses for awhile as squats may not be such a good idea). I can train abs and spend a couple three days in the gym doing some cardio. I plan to at least get in their 2 days a week until I can train with that arm again.

RIV good luck with your knee.
