Not sure if this is in the right section or not. I tore my labrum in my right shoulder a few years back and have kind of hoping it would get better on its own. It is a lot better than it was when I first injured it, but it still isn't right so I am considering surgery. Has anyone on here had it done or anything similar and have thoughts? This is my throwing arm so it is kind of a pain to throw the ball.

Thanks,

Dave

Nah not at all, it actually hurts more doing day to day things than throwing the ball.

But seriously Davey, if your shoulder is bothering you in day to day activities, you should go see an orthopedist...torn labrums are no joke

here's some advice...try to do physio x12 weeks to strengthen it and see if your symptoms improve...if not,the tear maybe too much and then surgery will be required...rehab varies for everyone, but you're looking at 6 months just to get back to normal, and 1 full year to have the strength you originally had..although many say its never the same...best advice, talk to your doc

There's a guy in Mississauga I recommend to everyone, especially people with knee injuries or shoulder injuries -- he currently has 6 NHLers in there with the exact same issue, torn labrums. Hes a sports therapist -- and if he can't help it, then he'll direct you in the right direction

Look up Mind to Muscle -- his name is Dave Wright

Had my left shoulder operated on April 2009, with multiple tears through out my rotator cuff.A month to the day I was back in for surgery do to infection. This resulted in 4 day stay in the hospital with a irregation pumps trying to clean up the infection.Needless to say the repair was destroyed by the infection.Ten days after my 2nd operation I was back in the hospital for a 3rd time infection was still present , 3rd operation within 6 weeks another 4 days with the irregation . Released from hospital spent the following 6 weeks wearing a intervenus pump for anti-biotics 24/7 , Slept on a laz-y-boy reclinner for the next 2 1/2 months (if you call 1hr here and there , never a full sleep ). Finished my rehab December 2009 in my Therapist words you have Platued, I went into this surgery . because i could not sleep at night do to the pain in my shoulder , now at this point I can sleep thru the night ,But been advised by both specialist that the force of swinging a bat , golf club could result in tearing apart the anchors of the repair work.Also at the time of my desision to take the surgery my oldest son anounced that they were expecting a child, I wanted to be able to lift my grandchild up. Today my shoulder has limitations, but lifting my grandson up is not one of them , and getting a full night sleep (6 hrs lol ). The bottom line is it is a decision to be made on all aspects of your life good luck with yours SR86

I had a bankart repair done on my shoulder 2 years ago because of a torn labrum. Mine was caused by mulitple dislocations. My shoulder had gotten to the point where it fell out of place while i was running! I was told it would be 6 months before i could do anything and 12 months before i would really be able to get back into sports. The procedure was done OCT 29th, and started Physio the day i was cleared to do so, and went 3 times a week for the first couple months, than later cut it back to twice a week, and i played our first game of the season may 31st! The first couple weeks where very painful, and it was a very slow return to moving it, by feb i still didnt have any use of that arm.

Knock on wood, but i haven't dislocated since, partly because im more careful, but also because of the repair, i'm lucky its not my throwing arm, but stretching for balls is tough, and diving is just out of the question. I still dont have full range of motion, and i never will, bascially he tighten the muscles and tendents so that my shoulder can no longer go into its most vunularable position.

Althought i played last summer, i had obivously lost alot of strenght and it affected me as you would expect, but this summer i seem to be back to where i was pre-surgery.

Its a long process, but im 100% glad i did it, i was afraid to play any hockey before i had it, now im back to my rec skate twice a week, and i play ball 3 or 4 nights a week, and in the gym the other nights. I still get some pain at night if i over use it, but nothing compared to what it was like before the procedure. IF you do it, make sure your committed to the rehab, physio physio, physio, and dont be afraid to let him/her hurt you, it isnt fun but i make progress a lot quicker because i let him go at it.

Good luck with it!!

Rough! Thats some bad luck, but i would like to hope infections after surgery is not norm!

I also Slept on a laz-y-boy reclinner for a month! Was much more comfortable than trying to lie flat in a bed.
