The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
What we do/did
My husband and daughter had surgery and lots of PT. It worked great for my husband and not so much for my daughter. She does chiro and heat a lot. I just had PT. It's coming back a bit now in my left shoulder/arm, much as you describe, when I type, sew or hold my tablet to read. I still have the PT exercises so I'm doing them again. Use heat sometimes and since I got a TENS/EMS unit I am going to use the EMS on it tonight to see if that helps. My mom just takes Lyrica and opioids. For some reason opioids have never seemed to affect her. They make me check out completely until they wear off, not to mention that my gastro doc very strongly opposes them in my stomach/gut, so they are not an option. Same problem. Four doctors. Four ways of dealing. They all work somewhat, but none of us are completely pain-free forever but we can stay comfortable most of the time. We just have to avoid the causes and do what works for us. I hope you find your comfort zone.
