Default Labrum Tear....

Terrible news today. Extensive Labrum tear in the rear of my shoulder after it dislocated for the 2nd time in as many weeks(and first time in 25 years prior). Anyone had this? Seemed like surgery was the only option to fix it properly. Anyone ever done it through rehab? It's not a complete tear but pretty large.

I actually have a Labrum tear in my hip. Few years ago I was playing softball and after a game I could not extend my hip or rotate it normally. Long story short it took 2 years to get an accurate diagnosis with 2 MRI's, X-rays and 5 doctors. I got every diagnosis from sports hernia to torn muscle but it took a sports medicine doctor who knew the injury well to diagnose it from the MRI. I do not know about the surgery for the shoulder but the surgery for the hip is very extensive and not necessary if one can deak with the pain. After a year now of leaving my hip alone and not constantly moving it akwardly to see if it still hurt, I am finally feeling better. He said it would start to heal itself but may always cause some discomfort. I no longer play sports so I will probably never get the procedure. I feel your pain, no pun intended, and I hope it works out for you.

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.

Been dealing with a labral tear in my shoulder for the past 3 years. Doctor said it would require surgery and 2-3 months off work. I've just been dealing with it because I can't afford to take that much time off.

It seems to be bearable in the warmer months, but as soon as the temps drop below 40 or so it hurts like hell until it warms back up. Some days it feels like it's just hanging there.

I've had cortisone shots and anti-inflammatory meds and it doesn't touch it.

I had 2 tears in my labrum and one tore a chunk of bone off with it. I had that surgically repaired June 2010. They also tightened the capsule up to keep it from slipping out of place.

But then in Oct 2011 I had problems with it slipping out of place 5-6 times a week. I didn't tear the labrum this time, the capsule was loose again. So I had that tightened up again in June 2012 and I've been relatively good since. I had more trouble than some because of baseball like the post above. Only thing that was weird was that it is my non-throwing arm. I first dislocated it diving in the gym in college, smart huh? haha. So I don't need the complete full range of motion in my left as I would my right arm.

I observe 2-4 labrum repairs a week. Posterior repairs can be more challenging for the docs. Small anchors will be drilled and pounded into your glenoid.

Hopefully the doc you have planned to do the surgery does a good amount of sports med work and these types of repairs on a regular basis.

Good luck with the surgery and rehab.

He is a shoulder specialist so I feel pretty comfortable with him. Thanks everybody...hoping all goes smooth.

Not sure how I feel about this neck catheter, but it *is* filled with pain meds so I suppose I can deal with ti.

Tore rotator cuff and labrum in same shoulder. The rehab can be a real pain but you will get back to normal. I refused the neck cath as Im not a fan of needles after watching my mother go through chemo, left a bad taste... For your own sake best advice is to show up to rehab and work from home on the exercises as well. Keeping your range of motion good goes a long way in recovery.

Had a SLAP repair in April, probably the most painful surgeries I've had just be sure to continue the PT and excersises.
