Hi. I had OVO partial shoulder replacement. My supraspinatus tendon was repaired at the same time. 6 weeks post-op, I could not raise my arm because the titanium head of the replacement would hike up too high. Repeated attempts to find a way to raise the arm in PT resulted in pain and in eventually re-tearing the supraspinatus. I returned to surgery to repair the tendon. The horrid process started again. 10 weeks post-op, I still could not raise my arm due to pain and the fact that the titanium humeral head wouldn’t stay down. Does anyone have an idea what happened?
