I would really like some advice about my shoulder and how to deal with it. The problems basicly started september 2011, i was training too much, no proper warm up etc etc just the usual beginners mistakes. I went to the doctor who advised 1 month of rest. I didnt fully rest tbh but dropped most of the lifting and didnt do any kickboxing as well.
After the month of “rest” i went to the PT to get checked out. He advised to drop all the training activities above a 90 degree angle and to start strengthening my rc muscles, he said i probably had impingement of the supraspinatus. Well my being addicted to training i continued to do some pull ups twice a week without doing any chest work, so after two months my shoulder felt really bad and i decided to stop training all together, i kept going to the PT and had visited an orthopedic surgeon.
after 2 months the surgeon wanted to make some echo’s which showed some bursitis but everything else was oke. He suggested rest so i did that for 3 months, while my condition didnt get any better, he suggested an arhroscopy, last thurday i had my arthroscopy and the surgeon told my i had a tear in my shoulder capsule. His advise was to start training intensely as soon as possible, everything when very fast so i didnt have a chance to ask if there are any dangers in starting to train again, ofcouse i was very happy to hear it but i am concerned that i could possibly injure myself even more.
Furthermore i dont know if i should contact my PT again he diagnosed my with impingement in the first place :S. the surgeon did mention that if my shoulder doesnt improve over the next 2 months i could have another surgery where he could stitch the tear.
hopefully you guys can provide some useful advise thanks
