I had an MRI done that showed multiple tears to the rotator. Had the repair surgery 2011. Within a year I was in pain again. Same shoulder. MRI was again done and showed 1 of the previously noted tears! Nothing was saying it was a re-tear or one previously repaired. Should this not have been repaired the first time? I now have winging shoulder, atrophy of the long thoracic nerve as well as an atrophied muscle. 1st surgery was in Sept 2011 2nd surgery also Sept 2012.rotator cuff tendinopathy with partial tears of supraspinatus and subscapular tendons. Part of the first MRI impression. MR arthogram revealed a partial thickness tear of the supraspinatus 2 cm by 1cm. Part of the second MRI result. Just to help clarify.
