    Thanks to you all for your comments. I helps a lot to share it with my friends. Many of you are "virtual" friends but that doesn't mean that you're not meaningful in my life. Hell, before long many of people's best friends will be avatars run by AI. Coming very soon.

    FWIW: my wife had her shoulder repair and subsequent reverse shoulder replacement at OHSU. Doc is one of the best.

Will the pain eventually go away without (or even with) surgery? I've been on the chronic pain road for many years (5 back surgeries including a spinal fusion, open heart surgery a year ago, etc.) but the rotary cuff pain is a new level. I like to think that I'm a pretty stoic SOB but this one is kicking my butt.
    Taken with a grain of salt... I recall AJ Foyt talking about healing, and what worked best after fairly serious crashes, some that involved bones broken..and 'for him' it meant going out 8 or so hours a day, in discomfort, and painting fence rail along a ranch.

    And how many rotator cuff tears did AJ report fixing by painting fences? I missed that part of it.
