I have to have one of these two procedures done and am wondering if anyone here has ever had one. One has a 3 month recovery and the other a 6 month recovery. My surgeon said the one most people have is a Tenotomy and that mostly body builders or 75 pound women have the Tenodesis. However, then I was talking with a friend who almost had to have one last year when she had shoulder surgery. Her doctor said the same thing as mine but her physical therapist said absolutely to have the Tenodesis because the other one limits your range of motion-ugh-so confusing! Anyone had either?
