Rotator Cuff and torn ligament

I blew out the ligament and messed up my right rotator cuff and now it clicks a lot and is weak, NO PAIN ever
Had MRI w & w/o contrast.
VA wants to operate and try microsurgery which he says won't work so after 3 weeks in the VA hospital not being allowed to sleep laying down he says we'll do it again the old fashioned way which means 3 more weeks in hospital w/o laying down to sleep and another 4-6 weeks in hospital recuperating.
Anybody have better way of doing this?
AND I go to LA Fitness with a heart surgion that has same problem and he claims that at our ages (I'm 60, him high 60's) it would not heal right because blood doen't t run to that ligament.
Any recommendations?
