Hi Susan and Ed,
The pain is less and I do think the ice helped with that. I am not allowed to move it yet. I can only take it out of the restraining sling three times a day. Then it just hangs at my side. I was told not to lift even the weight of the arm. I use the other arm to move it.
I think the winging is down but I really can't move the arm into position that would show that. I see the surgeon next week. He may add some more movement but told me there would be no PT until 3 months. They drilled a hole in the scapula and attached the muscle with the help of a donor tendon. I think that has to heal before I move much.
