    I would take a look at your workout program; see if it isn't the source of shoulder problems. I've taken glucosamine chondroitin and it has really helped me out with knee and hip pain from a childhood hip injury.

    After surgery, the pain can be pretty intense. A lot of people I spoke to said that they regret having surgery, just after it was done. My advice would be, just work hard at rehab (not a pleasant experience) and in the long run things will get better.

    It took me 6 months of rehab after my surgery, and I have no regrets. It took 1 yr for the pain to completely go away. Now that shoulder feels stonger then the other one. I still continue to do rotator cuff exercise as a warm up before starting the day off for upper body workouts. Glucosamine either help or don't for some people, but it does not make it worse.

    For some, it takes around a month to notice any difference with glucosamine. Also make sure the recommended dose is at 1500mg of glocosamine and 1200mg of chondroitin, spread out throughout the day.

    I would say stick with it for another month and see if things improve any...
