        I would say it will still be bothering you next weekend at the Roundup.
        My brother did this some years ago when he was about 25, took 10-14 days before he said it was pretty much gone.

          Not if, but when,for a rotator cuff operation. I, and My Son have had one.

            I just popped mine out a week ago today. It still hurts when I get the pipe wrenches going, and sometimes i'll get a twinge when i'm not doing anything at all. oh, and it aches every morning when I roll out of bed.
            No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

              It could be worse, I have to have my shoulder replaced later this month.

                My brother had a chronic shoulder problem. If I remember right it was his rotator cuff. He couldn't lift that one arm above his shoulder.

                He was going to physical therapy for a while with no results and work was about to suspend him/med leave (can't really put a fire fighter on light duty).

                His son ended up getting a Wii game system. When he (bro) tried playing golf, tennis and bowling he noticed his shoulder was going right back to normal. Now his shoulder is normal and if he notices any pain etc. he just plays a few Wii games and all is fine.

                  Ben, you should have called! I just talked to my brother. He said it can take 6-8 weeks, but you should be in a sling and get an x-ray. He said you need to make sure you don't have a small fracture.

                        X rays are good, got those in the ER. The doctors said a sling can be counterproductive when used for to long. It's just bumming me out. I ususally heal fast, not this time.

                        Wish you the best of luck Mark with your surgery.

                          that's all ben's wife felicia needs to hear.

                          ben needs a wii to heal his shoulder

                          ben, i know a new propress will heal your shoulder as you won't have to keep rotating the torch around the pipe to solder.

                          as long as your trigger finger is good, you're good to go up to 4''

                          see felicia, there's a medical reason why ben needs new expensive tools

                          want joeys brother to write you a prescription for this

                          you can redeem the prescription at ricks toy/ tool store

                          doctors orders

                            He said the sling should be the first few days to a week to tighten things up. . . . .too late now Call sooner next time. You know what this means? You are not as young as you use to be and it takes longer to heal. Welcome to being a grown up!
