Are there other options besides surgery for cuff and labrum tears?

Question:
Had surgery in January and still in pain. Had another MRI, it showed 2 tears in rotor cuff and labrum tear. The company will not let me come back; I climb poles for a phone company. I’ve worked 35 years with this company, not sure I want to go through another surgery. Do I have options?

Answer:

If you have cuff and labral tears, the only way to fix them is with surgery. Another option is doing less strenuous work which doesn’t stress your shoulder so much but that may be hard to find. A final option is living with your shoulder as it is which will also not be easy. I’m sorry for your condition, but those are your options.
