Myofacial Pain Syndrome

Has anyone been diagnosised with MPS following surgery? I am now 11 mos post op & feel as though the symptons of MPS are my exact issues now. However, none of my docs, therapists, etc have mentioned this. They all just say "you're getting better & keep doing what you're doing". I also read an article on "frozen shoulder" & it also mimicked what I am feeling.
Can anyone relate to this.
thx Julie

  • I dont know about the MPS, but I did have a frozen shoulder after a decomression surgery on my shoulder. My shoulder basically froze to a point of where I could lift it. I couldnt lift my elbow upwards very far and it was quite painful. I know you have the risk of this with shoulder surgeries, like rotor cuff tears, and shoulder decompressions. I dont know much about what you are talking about.
    I had to go back to the OR and have the Dr manually twist my arm until the adhesions and stuff broke and it was like having the surgery all over again. The OR team said it is the worst sound they ever hear. Sorry I cant help you more. Take care, Robin
  • thx for replying
    PT told me yesterday that I dont have myofacial sydrome. Its all post surgerical crap! Such as scar tissue, adhesions, etc. Not only did I have frozen shoulder, but he's seen frozen hips & frozen knees, all from not moving the joints. I can only imagine how painful it must have been for you to have another surgery to correct it. Hope you are doing much better. Are you about all healed yet?
