After a nasty fall from a deer stand in oct. 2009 I had a repair of my right shoulder nov. 2009 Had a full thickness tear of all of the Supranius( not sure of the spelling) and detached bicep. Did therapy for 3 months and around 8 months had a sharp pain in the shoulder. Had an MRI and it showed another full tear in the tendo but the bicep held. Did another repair and all was good until this summer when the are lost much of ROM and pain became increasingly troublesome. Did an MRI and it showed another tear in the same tendo same full thickness entire tendon with 5 cm of retraction. Went to a sports ortho and he says the tendon is not repairable. He suggest's intensive therapy to atrengthen the shoulder muscle's to improve ROM I am 56 and he is not certain with the condition of the shoulder we can get satisfactory improvement and then the next option is a reverse shoulder replacement. So my questions for those here that have had similar issue's did the therapy improve the ROM enough to have a decent active life. And if not do reverse shoulder replacement's improve ROM enough to have somewhat improved funtion. Not wanting to golf but being able to throw a ball to my grandkids would be nice. Thanks in advance to anyone with comments or suggestion's.
