Posted by Carol A.

husband had open heart surgery to replace aortic valve; first response out of surgery was pain in shoulders.  This continued.  other efforts to no avail and finally surgery to repair rotator cuff tear in right shoulder took place 13 months after open heart; repair failed in 5 days.
