Anyone here have more than a couple shoulder surgeries and come out successful?
I had surgery for partial rotator cuff tear and partial labrum tear 10 yrs ago. It only involved debridement and shaving down the acromion bone. Dr told me I will eventually fully tear it since I will always continue to work out. And he was right.
A year and a half ago had surgery to repair full tear ( that I was dealing with for a year or so and still working out) plus 2 labrum tears (which he couldn’t repair cause they were frayed, only cleaned up) and he also performed a tenodeses for torn bicep. Five anchors total. Then I wound up partially tearing it again 4th week into my recovery while at rehab.
Been dealing with it for a year and still working out but improvising using high reps, slow eccentrics, pre exhaust and other techniques etc since I can’t push any real heavy weight and basically back to where I as before surgery and maybe even worse.
Trying to see if third surgery is a charm. Anyone with multiple tries at it and come out good?
I haven’t been back to Dr. since re tearing it and was just wondering if it’s worth it or possible to repair it. I can’t accept living like this as far as working out is concerned but I want to be realistic about my chances of success. Don’t want to go through that pain and hassle again for nothing. I’m about 60 % strength level on pressing exercises and will never get beyond that which is roughly where I was pre surgery.
