I have had to have both shoulders repaired by surgery, I put up with the pain too long and my right shoulder was horrible it took a full year to recover after the surgery.The Doc said I would never shoot a bow,lift weights or even crank a weed eater because the damage was so bad.After 4 months of religious rehab and following all the instructions by the therapist I am back to where I was before . So don't put it off like I did.Find a good orthopedic surgeon and go from there.Hope my rant helps. I was 57yoa for the first surgery and 59yoa for the last one.
