It's been a little over a year since my surgery. I did my rehab religiously for the first year. Being 59, I don't heal as fast as some. lol
For the first 8 weeks, they kept saying you are doing fine, ect. By staying on it hard, I made my 12 week goals in 10 weeks. That got the PTs attention!
After that it was the long hard road of recovery. It is very easy to fall into the trap of doing what I like, and what "feels good". I have a very ragged shoulder tendon that is holding everything else up!
It is the weak link in my chain, but I am working on that.
I do my weight training circuit, twice a week. I need the extra day to recover. For a while I wasn't doing the other small muscle exercises after my circuit, too tired after lifting.
Then 1 day I skipped the gym and did my assistive exercises at home.
It was obvious that the neglected areas had not improved very much.
Now after lifting, I come home and do the sissy bells on my plyo ball.
Things are coming along, for someone who had more of a shoulder reconstruction!
Do not push too hard, rest is good. I took a month off, and came back stronger in my worst lifts. Don't skip the painful moves, do less!
JMHO I hope this helps.
