I’ve had severe to moderate pain in my shoulder for about 5 years now. I’ve been to two different orthopedic surgeons and they have both told me the same thing - Torn Larum. I have all the text book symptoms. Pain and clicking with overhead motion, pain when lifting weight out to the side, etc.
The Doc I’m seeing now put me on a 6 week PT program to rule out a “sloppy shoulder”. The PT had little to no effect on my condition so I’ve decided to have the surgery. My goal is to be able to throw a baseball again with my sons.
My concern is around recovery time. I know my arm will be in a motion restricting sling for 6 weeks or so but will I be able to go back to work sooner than that? I have an office job and my biggest concern is with typing. I ask this question because I got my FLMA form back from the doctor’s office and they say I cannot work for 3 months. This is not an option as I have two critical projects in the final stages at that time.
Anyone ever have arthorscopic surgery to repair a torn larum? We don’t know how serve the tear(s) are. I have pain the in front and pain in the back of the shoulder so I guess that’s a SLAP tear.
