You need to have it evaluated to determine how bad it is. Pain alone is not enough of a diagnostic to determine if it needs surgery. Talk to your doctor. Yes, talk to your doctor; however just to give you hope. Les Paul, the father of the Electric Guitar, was in a car wreck and severly injured his right arm. He had two choices. Have it set so it would always be straight or have it set so it would always be bent at the elbow. He chose bent at he elbow so he could continue to play. The last I heard he is way up in his 80's and plays every Monday night at a place in NYC.

Rotator cuff tears (tendon tears around the shoulder joint) can repair over time, but depends on a number of factors including, site, size of tear, age of patient, cause of tear. In the elderly population rotator cuff tears are very common but do not bother them. With the correct physio/exercises one can incorporate the rest of the rotator cuff to compensate and so may not need surgical intervention.

Recovery from a rotator cuff injury happens in phases. The first phase would be to immobilize the tendon to allow it to start healing on its own. The patient will be in an arm sling for approximately 3 to 4 weeks. A physical therapist is required to assist the patient in moving the arm and restore range of motion. Patients are not allowed to move the arm on their own for the first 4 to 6 weeks, so they will not endanger the repair.After 3 months following rotator cuff surgery, most patients will be able to lift 5 to 10 lbs. over their head and can initiate strengthening exercises on their own. It is imperative to continue moving the arm so that the shoulder does not get stiff. By 6 months after surgery, most patients regain approximately 75 to 80 percent of their strength back. Full recovery from rotator cuff surgery can take anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the patient. A study of rotator cuff surgery recovery published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, issue 1, in 2008 showed continued strength gains 2 years after rotator cuff surgery.

It all depends on how bad the injury was and what they had to repair. Also, depends on how you heal, and how you take care of your shoulder, and do your home and therapy exercises consistently.

Rotator cuff repair generally involves some type of surgery to re-attach the tendon to its anchor spot on the Humerous bone in the shoulder.
