Has anyone had biceps tenodesis or tenotomy?
I had a SLAP repair and a microfracture performed on my right shoulder in Aug and I am still struggling to get to full ROM. I had three anchors put into my shoulder to reattach the labrum. I am currently at 160 degrees front ROM and 40-45 degrees external. Still experiencing a lot of pain.
My surgeon is giving one more round of PT (12 sessions), which will be my fifth overall. If there is no significant improvement to bring me to full ROM or to pain free, he wants to go back in and perform a second surgery. He said that he would prefer to perform the tenotomy over the tenodesis because it’s an easier recovery.
Any insights to either of these surgeries and recovery would be greatly appreciated.
