So many of you have written to me about the ice machine that my husband used to help manage the pain from his rotator cuff surgery and where you can buy one. It's called the Donjoy Iceman Clear 3 and you can buy this and other brands on Amazon.com Ice Therapy Machine
I highly recommend you purchase it if you want to be able to manage the post operative pain and reduce the necessity for pain medication. My husband was able to get off the pain medication after only two days post surgery with the help of this machine which kept the swelling and pain manageable. He could not have done without it. He used it 24/7 for the first week and then 2-3 times a day thereafter. It also came in handy to use during physical therapy. He would often be sore from the manipulation and exercises and being able to use the ice machine helped ease that discomfort tremendously. This device can be used for pain management to any area of the body where cold compresses are needed such as knees, back, shoulders, etc. It's quite handy to have and we have used it many times since my husband's surgery. If you would like to learn more about my husband's rotator cuff surgery experience as well as what you can expect from the surgery, recovery, and therapy process, then please view my Rotator Cuff Shoulder Surgery Experience video on YouTube, here's the link for you.

I was my husband's caretaker during the entire surgery and recovery process and decided to share my husband's entire experience to help others deal with the anxiety and fear surrounding this surgery, which my husband had plenty of. I also shared post-surgery recovery videos which update you at his 4 months, 8 months, and one-year post surgery recovery anniversaries. Those videos can be found from the above link as well. If you have any questions about the surgery or recovery process, please comment on the video, I'm happy to help. I will always answer your questions.
