I’m 8-weeks post-rotator cuff repair. Making good progress. I have full range of motion, and the pain is way down. Sleeping can be problematic. My arm is so weak, but now my physical therapy can step it up a notch with resistance exercises.. So motivated to get stronger again. But I also have to be very mindful 🙂

A few pictures from yesterday. I am very mindful to not let my left arm do much assistance at this time.

Baby steps. But better than nothing! I am grateful that I’m bouncing back – as a Physical Therapist Assistant, I’ve worked with many patients who struggled with shoulder repair. It is a pretty intense surgery!
