    Im 10 weeks out from having the surgery for the same injury. Right now the tendons are supposedly reattached to the bone and range of motion is about 60% normal. Have to finish that off then begin the restrengthening. In all, its supposed to take about 4-5 months to get back to some semblance of normal. Im athletic and work at it daily so I wouldn't expect anyone to return to NFL condition much faster than that. The rehab is a bear and it just plain needs time to heal. With the blows players take to that area, reinjury would be a great concern and hanging it up is a likely outcome. I may have to quit playing soccer and came to the realization there are other things in the world to do that wont risk having normal movement for the rest of my life.

    I also have a torn rotator cuff and recently saw a doctor. It is a slight tear and he said they strongly advise no surgery unless the pain and discomfort becomes unbearable because the recovery is one of the hardest to get through. A colleague at work had the surgery 8 months ago and is still trying to get his range of motion back and may have to have a second surgery.

    Plax is done.

    I would see a rotator cuff injury perhaps forcing someone to rethink playing something like volleyball, but soccer???

    There's also the very real possibility of being tripped or slide tackled and and coming down straight on your shoulder, much like PB did trying to catch a ball. I totally understand not wanting a rec league thing to not possibly cost you the mobility of your arm for life.

    I know... sounds crazy. But two incidents on the pitch caused the injury in the first place. One, a big dude hit me from behind and I crashed my shoulder into the ground like an airplane. Seemed to heal some after that but two weeks later a strong shoulder charge finished it off and man was it a mess when the doctor got in there. Rotator cuff separation, labrum tear and bicep tendon abraded to boot. Turns out this injury and rehab were way worse than my broken leg years ago. Doesn't sound too bad at first but Plex will begin to realize how tough the whole process is after the surgery. It is then when retirement will call has name very loudly. I love playing soccer and right now cringe at the thought of my own retirement but man I don't want to go through that surgery and rehab again.
