Dear Double D,
if the appropriate surgery was done by an experienced shoulder surgeon the rotator cuff heals perfectly in most cases and there should not be longterm problems. The type of anchor does not play such a signicant role although I agree that we prefer metal anchors. Also, once the tendon has healed you should not be compromiseg in any way.
What is more important for you than finding out what type of anchors were used is to be examined to see why you are stil "compromised"

Another very important factor is if the surgeon found and addressed all the problems in your shoulder when doing the arthroscopy.
