Post-Operative Instructions Rotator Cuff Repair DIET. Begin with clear liquids and light foods (jellos, soups, etc.) Progress to your normal diet if you are not nauseated; WOUND CARE. Maintain your operative dressing, loosen bandage if swelling of the hand occurs; It is normal for the shoulder to bleed and swell following surgery.After the other damage is fixed, repair to the rotator cuff is accomplished through a small incision without the arthroscope. Open surgery is less common but may be indicated in complex tears, revision surgery or when a tissue graft is required. During open surgery a portion of the deltoid shoulder muscle is detached to access tendon.
