I had a massive rotator cuff tear to my right shoulder. Yes, these things can happen when you fall while chasing your dog! The day of surgery I was so impressed by the treatment I received. As I was being prepared for the surgery several nurses and technicians came up to me and asked how I was doing, assuring me everything was going to be fine. Just prior to being taken into the operating room, Dr. DeMorat sat by my bedside and explained the entire procedure to me, letting me know what to expect. Everyone I spoke with had amazing bedside manor. After the
surgery follow their advice and you’ll be fine. When you start PT you need to also do the exercises at home, not just at the PT appointment. This is crucial if you’re to regain full mobility again. Don’t expect too much too soon, as the repair process takes a full six months. Stay the course and do the PT. I just passed the six month mark and I am very pleased to say I have regained full mobility again with no pain whatsoever. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. DeMorat and his team. Trust me as a previous patient, you’ll be in very good hands.
