I had horrible shoulder pain and if I tried to reach in a cabinet I would get a sharp pain. Started PT, and after 3 months I'm almost at 90% and the pain is gone. During PT, my arm is manipulated, stretched and there's some deep tissue massage. Oh, and they also massage my chest muscles. Everything seemed so tight after reconstruction. I think they have broken up a lot of scar tissue. I also have stretching work to do at home. I hope you figure it out soon because it's definitely no fun. I was told the strength is the last thing to get back.
