Dear paizesh,

If the calcium was completely removed from your shouder you should not have any more pain after such a long time. Have they taken follow up X=rays to check? As far as the "new" shouder is concerned you should know that the calcium can also be removed by "needling" in our consulting rooms. You may look at our website at www.shoulderinstitute and look at "Shoulder Problems" and then at "Calcific Tendinitis" and you will get a lot more information about this condition. You are also welcome to see us for an opinion if you so wish
