6 months: Younger athletes have a greater likelyhood of redislocating. While physical therapy (rather than surgical intervention) helps some, the larger the tear and the younger the athlete the greater probrbability of future problems if not surgically repaired.

Torn labrum?: Your surgery could be taken out small tear, the recovery from that about4-8 weeks. If you repair of the labrum with sutures it takes up to 3month. Protect yourself so will not have it again. Thank you and good luck.

Recovery time varies: Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care. Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.
