Re: Choosing a Surgeon for SLAP repair

Avoid the high speed movements in the meantime while you build the strength, avoid the painful movements/twinges, and make sure you have enough rest days between wrokouts. Stuff you pretty much already know.

Good work man keep it up.

I'm sure that if you want to keep posting some people will find that useful

Re: Choosing a Surgeon for SLAP repair

I'm very glad you're making such good progress! I'd still be interested in your posts, if you keep it on this thread. I will likely be posting on one of the shoulder threads my own shoulder situation. It's great to read "happy endings" like "He trained happily ever after".

Re: Choosing a Surgeon for SLAP repair

I'm jealous. Apparently with my procedure ROM is a lot slower. I'm 10 weeks and ortho said 45-50 degrees external rotation is good. 4-6 months and I'm on 4 month path.

I'm sure you realize how weak the RC muscles get after inactivity. TGUs are your friend.

Good luck.

Re: Choosing a Surgeon for SLAP repair

Hey Troy...

I think of you (and Darla) each time I post one of these status notes. It becomes more and more apparent how fortunate I am in the spectrum of shoulder injuries. And to have the input of all the contributors to this thread.

I'm sure you're doing everything in your control to heal properly, and look forward to hearing you're back in the game as well.

-Paul

Re: Choosing a Surgeon for SLAP repair

Wow, it's been a long time for an update. Time to close the loop.

About a week ago the Ortho gave me boot. Placed his hand on my forehead and proclaiimed "Healed!". Ok, maybe not so dramatic, but it was to me. He was very pleased with the progress, and saw no reason to have me visit again. Actually asked that I not visit again

I asked about any higher liklihood of arthritis in the shoulder due to the surgery, and he said that because he did not work on any of the normally sliding surfaces (only ones that contacted during impingement) that he thought it unlikely I'd see a higher chance of arthritis in that shoulder. That too was good news.

Have been steadily ramping up the workload on the shoulder, paying attention to form on everything. Things went well enough that I decided to give yesterdays "Fight gone bad" a try, even though it had the dreaded SDHPs. Kept the form as perfect as I could, did most of the lifting with the hips. Didn't get a great score, but no pain either during or after the workout (didn't even think about ice), and no discomfort this morning.

Gotta thank everyone who contributed to this thread and provided advice. I probably won't have much to add here unless I manage to do something bad and have a relapse. I'm hoping others going through similar issues will find the record helpful.

-Paul
