Thanks for writing in,
You can expect such pain during physiotherapy/ mobilisation of shoulder. Usually the overhead activities in the shoulder can cause such pain. Sometimes in addition to rotator cuff repair
, surgeon might also perform a sub-acromion decompression for better results.
The pain usually settles down as you start doing your routine activities. If pain is more you can keep ice packs over the site, avoid overhead activities till the pain reduces. Discuss with your doctor.
Wish you a good health.
