I’m about to have surgery on my right shoulder on March 2nd or March 9th depending on some pre-op appointments and my work schedule. I had an Arthogram and MRI with contrast done in December which said that I had a SLAP tear and a piece of something floating in my AC joint.
My AC joint is also warped and pushed forward and I have tendinitis in my supraspinatus. Luckily my rotator cuff is not torn from what they explained to me. They don’t think I have any lesions but my shoulder is still very unstable after dislocating it in October. My powerlifting is definitely on hold for a bit.
Also my right biceps constantly hurts and both triceps left and right constantly go numb. I have reduced feeling in my right ring finger and pinky. The doctors basically told me they don’t really know whats going on until they get in their with a scope.
I’m gonna post alot before the surgery and during my rehab. Posting on here is really for my mental health because it’s gonna be really hard not to go crazy being in a sling and rehabbing it for what the doctors say will be 8 to 10 months. I personally think that I can come back faster but then again I don’t know what I’m dealing with yet.
I would appreciate any and all responses if anybody out there knows a thing or two about shoulder surgery and could share their knowledge. I am planning on entering some competitions by the end of this year early next year so any training advice whatsoever would be good.
Honestly just having people talking to me that know what it’s like to have to focus on rehab instead of lifting would be a relief. If anybody out there knows any competitions coming up around the northern california area that would be good too.
Anyways thanks for the help and if you have any questions ask.
