Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I want to suggest you to get repeat MRI to see if there is some new problem which was not present before first surgery. There are times when rotator cuff is so badly torn that there is no repair possible. Still then pain relief can be provided. So i would also suggest you to see a arthroscopic surgeon. You can post your report to me also. I will be happy to help.
