      I know I need it and been battling issues for a long.... time. I HATE doctors and avoid them at all cost but now im getting neck spasms at the base of my head and although I can temporarily relieve the pain in my shoulder will admit failure.

      I have bc/bs insurance but it circles the drain as far as coverage so im wondering what out of pocket anyone had to float for the repair. My MRI I know is gonna hit me for about 400 out of pocket from what I can tell. But would like to here others experience with the whole procedure.

      you are going to have to look at what your coverage covers and your co pay as well as deductables man. it is individual as far as the costs go. i would go in and get checked out then weigh the costs out of pocket. the ahc has helped so many lol. sorry for your injury though man and hopefully you will be able to get it fixed without breaking the bank

      Thanks.. once upon a time my insurance was great but like all has become crap. Standard 80 20 with 2 grand down.. kicker 320 A WEEK is what im told I put to it ... I should have some platinum plus coverage with that ... whatever.

      what im wondering is expected recovery time as well as procedure. Do they cut you open still or more microscopic today and ya ill ask the doc to but looking for first hand experience with having it done.

      depending on how much of the rotator is jacked and how much needs to be replaced will be how much they have to cut on you. 99% of the time now they dont filet you open anymore though, it is normally very small incisions and that is it. it is much better than even 5 years ago. the recovery on a rotator is pretty lengthy though. if i am not mistaken heavy hitter here just had his done this year

      With in the last 22 months I have had both shoulders done.
      It is a long recovery time. Well for me anyway.ill be 59 in Jan.
      Each should had 5 incisions .get ready to learn to sleep sitting up for about 4 weeks
      Second sure it was done January 8th it is still holding me back on my bench and overhead should lifts.
      What bums me out is I will never be able to lift big weight again without a good chance of Re-enduring again .
      Bench and overhead lifts Where always my big lifts 505 bench at 55 yrs old and long bar shoulder presses 225
      Now bench 185 with pain enough to stop me.
      Good luck to you. If you have pain at rest you should get it fixed . Life is much better pain free .

      Man, so sorry to hear about your shoulder and that your insurance sucks like all the rest of them. You pay enough to have great insurance and they jerk you around like that and make you pay. These insurance companies should be ashamed of themselves.
      Well, yes, if its that bad, get it done and rehab it and you'll be gtg.
      I tore mine in 2003 and was told I had to have it surgically repaired. I simply could not afford to take time off from work so I never had it done. It definitely changed the amount of weight I worked out with but I can train pretty much pain free as long as Im careful. If I could have had the surgery, I would have.
