April of 2012 I had a partial shoulder replacement done. It did not go well. Several things went wrong.
1. The replacement part was too large for my body type.
2. 50% of my rotator cuff was damaged.
I then went for a 2nd surgery in Oct 2012. This went better. But, My rotator cuff was damaged immensely. I have been gong through physical therapy since May 2012. Just saw my surgeon recently, and I was told I would never gain the strength to lift over 1lb, because I could completely take out the last 50% of my rotator cuff. I can not lift anything as of now, not even 1lb. My surgeon informed me and my physical therapist that there is nothing else that can be done. Can I apply for social security disability? What is the process??
