  • What's the other surgery you've had from this injury if you don't mind me asking....was it also a spinal surgery? You only mention two surgeries for your neck.

    I had rotator cuff surgery last June. All the doctors I saw kept saying that the pain I was having in my shoulder & down my arm was coming from my neck. After 2 neck surgeries, I found a new ortho doctor & he ordered me an MRI/Arthogram & then said I had a full rotator cuff tear. 
    That was also a brutal surgery!

    Scrannel, because I am a workers comp case, I had to use the stimulator. I didn't want them to say I was being non-compliant.
