Had surgery on both shoulders 2 years ago. Right one now feels like it did before surgery. Question: can it re-tear?

Unfortunately, another tear can occur after repair.
Factors include how much damage was done before the first tear was operated on, how healing went and age. Please see your doctor for advice - you may just need a physical therapy and rest rotation or you may need to look into other options but scans can let you know more.October 16, 2018 - 3:06am
