    Slap tear in Shoulder

    Hi all,

    So after gyms reopening and relieving me of some tough mental health issues, I've gone and got myself a slap tear in my shoulder. I require surgery which is 4-6 months out of action and probably longer to regain the same muscle/strength back.

    My question is, within reason, can I continue doing lower body work after my shoulder surgery? Such as leg press, leg extensions, hip adductors etc.. I had knee surgery 8 weeks ago and I'm currently strengthening my leg back to pre-op levels so I don't want to totally stop this progress.

    I know most people will say rest up, but I don't think I can imagine not doing any lower body strength work for 3-4 months.

    Thanks in advance

    Bro I have been dealing with this **** for more than 6 months now and before I operate on that I need to fix my snapping triceps and ulnar nerve subluxation in both elbows. I have been prior to that in bodybuilding for 7 years and I can tell you that most people on this forum are just dumb and ignorant because they haven't seen an injury in their lifetime so they can just bs all day long and give you bad advice. This forum is useless for this kind of stuff.

    I recently had slap repair surgery in both shoulders, and unfortunately, I wasn't able to do any leg work until about day 90. It was a brutal recovery, but I also had fully separated labrums in both shoulders and needed 9 anchors in each. My first question is, how bad is your tear? Many people live with slap tears and function perfectly normally. In fact, many MLB pitchers have been found to have SLAP tears and not even know it! Physical therapy can get most people back up in action with very few restrictions (i.e. heavy overhead press, which will still be a restriction after this surgery). Like I mentioned, my labrums were fully separated, and there are still days I wonder if I should've gotten the surgeries.

    Man, I feel your pain, and I'll be happy to share my experience if you have other questions.

    My carrying angle is ok, all this good stuff happened while I was overtraining like an idiot until my body collapsed one day along with a slap tear.

    Got first surgery on right elbow, they cut a small portion of the tricep and transposed the nerve. Tricep still snapping and will need to go complete reattachment if I want to take care of this.

    Then another elbow, and a shoulder, and probably another shoulder later on. **** my life, wish my dad would have cummed me on the wall ))

    do you have some thoughts which exercise contribute to snapping triceps syndrome? skull crushers maybe?

    I can tell you from my own personale experience

    I remember that I always got sometimes some kind of "snapping" and sharp shooting pain when trying to really push it, for example, skullcrusher was an exericse that I HATED simply that no matter when I tried it I always got pain in the elbow and never realized what it is. I simply didn't do it. But all of that was very "rare" and not as nearly as it happens for me almost every time with flexion and extension.

    What led to my chronic condition, during closure time due to corona virus, I was training at home with concrete weights. Pair of over 20kg's each.

    I only trained with them, no real warm up, and that wasn't the weights I was used to. I was doing shoulder press with dumbells at the gym normally 12.5 - 14 kg no more than 16. These were more than 20kg. Same goes for overhead press.

    I wasn't doing on a straight chair, without proper form, compensating due to the weight, I remmeber having clicks in the shoulder while doing so but I simply igmored it.

    Like that for 1.5 month. Also doing with those same weights overhead tricep press while seated (which i also did in the gym, just max at 16kg).

    Shoulder started hurting, same time left elbow and hearing clicks and feeling movment, then right elbow out of nowhere.. Just like that.

    Moral of the story, don't train like a ****ing idiot and overdo it, be humble with yourself or you'll **** up your body.

    I am from Israel. In hebrew we have a saying that when you deal with something hard you'll need nerves of steel. For that particular case, you'll need nerves that made out of diamonds.

    I ****ed up, and it's been over 9 months and my life is a complete hell. I aint nowhere close to being done with this crap and will never be the same again. I honestly see no light in the end of the tunnel and life is really hard.

    Don't believe i'll ever make it. I do have hope, faith, on the other hand.... you can guess.

    That's all I can say. Maybe one day i'll write a book about it. Or, mother****ers will write a book about me, cause im damn near done with it...
