What should you do if your rotator cuff was broken at work and you had surgery 6 weeks ago and you're still in a lot of pain and your hand is swollen and shows fluid?

I'm thinking you need to see your doctor about this. Any medical question of this type is best answered by a medical professional. This can be a very serious condition, and you should definitely seek medical attention right away. Swelling in the hand can be caused by damage to the blood supply of the hand or by nerves that lead to the hand. Either one of these conditions could be due to the surgery or may have been caused by the initial injury that resulted in the rotator cuff surgery. In some cases, a condition such as RSD can be the culprit for swelling in the hand following an injury to the extremity.
