I had surgery on my shoulder to repair a bankart lesion (anterior labral tear that the cartilage is torn from the bone)
Surgery was on 4/16.
Initially after the surgery I was at 5% ROM and now I'm at about 40% ROM... hopefully in a month I'll have 100% ROM and just have to work on strengthening to prevent further dislocations.
My question is: How many people here have had basic shoulder surgery and recovered 100% and for those of you who haven't recovered 100%... what problems have you had??
I'm really scared that my joint capsule will still be too loose and I will redislocate my arm or I will lose range of motion...
My 2nd question is:
Has anyone ever had elbow pain for over 3 months with no signs of golfer's elbow, tennis elbow, bursitis, or arthritis?
I have no inflammation, and only pain when the joint is in motion (even without any resistance)
Curling my arm with 0 weight does not hurt, but holding my arm bent across my body perpendicular to my body and doing an extenion is what hurts most...
I haven't lifted on it for 2 months and the pain has not gone away....
I'm going to see my surgeon for my followup on Tues... I'll update after that.
-Little help here!
