I have had several shoulder dislocations recently (caused by a tendency to dislocate if I move it into the wrong position, not trauma).
The doctor has recommended shoulder and I need the following procedures; anterior and posterior labrum repair, SLAP repair and extensive debridement. It will be arthroscopic surgery.
in terms of recovery the doctor has said I will be able to type, use a mouse and return to work (desk job) within a couple of days, do CV exercise (including running) after 6 weeks, and return to my gym classes, yoga, netball and skiing after 3 months.
Has anyone had this surgery? How was your recovery?
It's not a straightforward decision for me, as I currently have no pain (immediately after the shoulder has reduced, the pain went), and no restrictions on any of my sports or exercise. Yet I'm going to voluntarily cause myself substantial pain!
Would be good to hear others' experiences!
