Pretty sure my rotator cuff is tearing. I've had some shooting pains straight through the shoulder from front to back at rest for awhile now. Then multiple times today I couldn't reach out in front of me, lift my arm or hold onto anything of any weight with my right arm/shoulder. Searing pain when I'd try. I haven't had any lymphedema, but scared to death a surgery would trigger it. Anyone have shoulder/rotator cuff surgery on their cancer side and done well?
