Re: [RC] Riding post rotator cuff surgery - Truman Prevatt


My wife had a broken arm that required a rod. They had to go through rotator cuff and hence had to completely rebuild the rotator cuff. She had to get the range of motion completely back before she felt comfortable riding. Cheer up and be patient six weeks sounds good. Keep going to physical therapy - that will make a big difference.

I would love any POSITIVE replies from any riders that have had moderate/severe rotator cuff surgery and your return to riding. I'm nearly 4 weeks post op and the doc said I could probaly ride at 6 weeks. I'm losing my mind (as you can guess). I really want to hear what other endurance riders have done (moderate/severe) and how quickly you were back to the rides. My therapists just kind of look at me and don't say a thing, not sure then understand the NEED to be back in the saddle...LOL

Thanks, as I need ANY cheering up I can get!
PS-my horse is a good guy, so not a concern about "handling" him post op. :o)
