rotator cuff tear

Posted by joan on 08/03/04 at 04:14 PM

Has anyone experience with full thickness rotator cuff tear of the supraspinatus involving the entire tendon. Approx. 3.0 cm of retraction. Also, partial tear invoving the anterior quarter of infraspinatus. I am currently doing PT and not in a lot of pain and have complete motion of arm except no strength. I am 62 years old and been swimming for 9 years. Looks like surgery but not sure of a good outcome. Maybe better left as is but have some limitation in activity such as swimming. Are my swimming days over. Thanks for a reply.
