I tore my labrum (SLAP) from baseball. About a year of PT and meds didn't fix it so I got arthroscopic surgery. Very good decision. Although the rehab was painful the first couple months it was worth it. I was back in sports within a year with no pain and not much restriction.

With the info provided, I would say to just get it over with now and don't waste any time trying to rehab it. But make sure you get at least a 2nd opinion if not 3rd (doctors' opinions that is). I did almost a year of pointless pt because the docs at my first place said I had a small tear in my rotator cuff. Went to Pittsburgh and the Steelers orthopedic surgeon tells me my cuff is fine, it's the labrum.
Currently selling some of my collection to fund Stan Musial, Jim Thome, and Perez - Steele HOF autos as well as vintage HOFer's.
