What causes shoulder pain with history of rotator cuff shoulder surgery?
It can be impingement in shoulder
I have studied your case. I think you might be having impingement in shoulder. This is caused by compression of cuff under the bone. As you have mentioned that you have already gone though a shoulder surgery so chances of compression is very high .
To confirm this diagnosis I would recommend you to get MRI of the shoulder. This will tell us if there is any cuff tear or compression is present.
If there is cuff tear or impingement than you might need Arthroscopy surgery to remove this.
I hope this answer will be helpful to you. Let me know if there is any other followup questions.
MRI of the shoulder will be helpful
Biceps or triceps or any other muscle around arm and shoulder feel painful when there is cuff problem. This is called referred pain. Other disease which can cause same symptoms is cervical spondylitis. But in that condition pain comes up to finger.
MRI of the shoulder will be helpful for us in confirming the diagnosis and further management.You can share that report with me.
Other option is that you can try steroid injection in shoulder by a expert shoulder specialist. It will give good pain relief though it is only effective for short term.
wish you a good health
