Unfortunately both of my shoulder have been diagnosed with SLAP tears over the years(confirmed with contrast MRI and physical tests), and I will be undergoing surgery to repair the first one on December 9th.
I'm having difficulty determining which to repair first (if I do both), which shoulder to address first to get closer to my prior level of performance, and If I did choose to repair both how far apart to schedule the surgeries.
Ideally, I would like to address the shoulder that gets me back to my normal routine the closest, but would appreciate your feedback.
-Damaged due to physical impact 3 years ago.
-Conservative rehab has allowed me to regain mobility and reduce pain, but open chain exercises, especially dumbell chest press beyond 30lb (used to press 100lbs pain free) causes pain.
-Day-to day I am good.
-Torn last year and has always been a lax joint.
-Conservative rehab has reduced pain, but there is day to day irritation and a subtle rub/grind with some motions.
-No pain generally with pushing/pulling open chain motions.
Thanks in advance, would love to get back into things full swing.
