Frozen shoulder surgery
what will the recovery time be surgery on a frozen shoulder, having both the manipulation + athorscopic... this is only 6 weeks after bicep tendon surgery, should I even have it done?
Whether or not you should have it done should be a discussion you have with your surgeon. He/she should be able to tell you more about the procedure. Ask about the risks and benefits of having the surgery verses trying a more conservative approach.
In general, it can take 6 months to recover although you should be able to do normal activity (get on a sweatshirt or lift milk) much sooner.
