Default Shoulder Surgery Video!

I had shoulder surgery about 3 weeks ago(SLAP tear). Upon watching my video not only was a grossed out, but I have a new respect for Orthopaedic Surgeons.

I suffered from chronic subluxation(minor but very painful dislocations)that I dealt with for 3 years or about 40 subluxes. I also had a Hill Sachs Lesion from the bones rubbing against each other during the dislocations.

After a 3 hour sugery that should have only taken 1 1/2 hours(my sh** was Fu**** up bad). I woke up with a tube in my neck attached to a pain killing pump that i had to wear for 3 days.

I now have 4 bio-fastak ancors(screws) in my shoulder that will be replaced by bone in 6-10 months.
The best part is I will regain 90-95 of my orginal range of motion.
The worse part is my $4,800 surgery ended up costing me $10,100.
So no RS6 for me this spring.
At least I won't be a crippled gimp forever. just 3 months......

Pics to come

I had shoulder surgery on Oct 8th, I also had a large slap tear along with having my Bicep reattached and having some bone shaved out of the joint(mumford proceedure). I have had a very intense rehab program so I could return to work ASAP. I refused the pain pump, good luck on healing up.

I had shoulder and upper arm surgery a couple of years ago from a motocross racing injury. Out of all the many injuries I have had (feet, ankles, Left open femur, Right Tibial Plateau, Rt. wrist x 3) the shoulder was the most painful and difficult to rehab. You use muscles and nerves running through that area for so many things. From finger, hand and arm movement, rotating your wrist, flexing your elbow, breathing, twisting, not to mention lifting your shoulder....etc. etc.

I remember being 3 months post surgery and still needing pain meds. I was into the rehab of the shoulder 60 days in, but man it was painful. Listen closely to the physical therapists, don't be lazy, do the exercises religiously and then follow the cool down regimen to the letter. You don't want scar tissue to form any more than it is already going to. When they have to go back in and loosen adhesions, it is NO fun.

Best of luck to you on your healing.

The price you are going to have to pay is CHUMP change. Not trying to be rude but your health and full movement is........PRICELESS.

I don't really care one way or another, but the off-topic, non-car related police might.

ive seen probably a hundred ortho surgeries, you should see how they do hip replacements. they use sterile craftsman **** and hammer and beat them the metal rod with the ball joint on the end in. The shoulder is a pain to rehab also because of it being stabilized by the rotator you have to rehab 4 muscles equally to have the same strength and movement all around. I have chronic shoulder issues but constantly work them out with light weights to keep them stable.
