Why arm cracks at the rotator cuff after breast cancer and removal of lymph nodes ?

After breast cancer and removal of 3 lymph nodes my arm has not been the same after breast cancer my arm cracks at the rotator cuff. I have pain in my arm and my hand is stiff and painful I have to open and close hand to crack a feel alittle better. I have had two infections to the same arm after surgery a year apart. It really bothers me the constant pain an having to move my arm to crack at the shoulder and elbow. What is going on and what can I do?

Thanks for query,
It seems that after surgery two times due to infections there might be some fibrosis and stiffness of the shoulder muscles causing this problem.
Go for regular physiotherapy.
Ok and bye.
