I have a torn lebrium in my hip. 7 weeks out for orthroscopic surgery. Lots of pain. I have a very physical job. Can i continue to work.
Labral tear: Labral tears of the hip are usually a result of impingement from the acetabulum (socket) or the femoral head (ball). The underlying cause needs to be addressed to protect the labrum. Also, there may be some underlying arthritis. You need to speak with your surgeon regarding his/her finding during the hip arthroscopy to determine why your still hurting and if you should be working or not. ...Read more
Evaluation First: First you should see an orthopedic surgeon to advise you on whether you need any treatment before going back to work. If you feel great, you can use your judgment and decide you do not need to be seen; however, if you have a job that requires any sort of manual labor it doesn't hurt to get checked out to make sure you are not at an unreasonably high risk of having another dislocation. ...Read more
No: In the absence of some sort of significant traumatic event (losing control of a heavy weight for example with serious torque place on shoulder) the likelihood of a significant injury at age 33 is pretty low. Would expect even a mild strain injury to still be causing symptoms only 1.5 wks later. Think safe to observe for now, if no signs of improvement with cont symptoms at 6 wks seek eval. ...Read more
I am fairly certain I have a torn rotator cuff, for about 18 months now, i was wondering if the pain and soreness will go away after surgery?
Time off varies: Surgery is typically outpatient takes 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. Recovery is 3-4 months. If you have a relatively sedentary job you can be back to work in a matter of days or weeks in a sling. IF you have a labor intensive job it will be difficult to work unless you can find light duty. You can typically drive once you are off pain meds and out of the sling which varies from 3-4 weeks. ...Read more

Beware : First dislocation? If this is first dislocation at your age might be ok after rehab. Avoid rotating arm backwards. If goes out again likely needs MRI and possible surgery. It is more important the position or movements you make that determine the stability of the shoulder. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had ACL surgery and am 7 weeks out and have a warm knee and was trying to find out if that's bad?
ACL Surgery: Having a warm knee definitely warrants evaluation. It is more a cause of concern if along with the warmth you also noticed increased pain, swelling, fever, and restriction in motion. These are signs and symptoms that could indicate an infection of the joint. I recommend having your knee evaluated by the orthopedic surgeon who did your acl surgery just to make sure everything is okay. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It depends: Every patient and every operation is a little bit different. Also every patient's job is different. I generally tell my patients that they can go back to work whenever they feel like it as long as there is no heavy lifting (more than 20 lbs) for 6 wks, mainly to reduce the risk of getting an incisional hernia. Also avoid driving or operating heavy machinery if you are still taking pain meds. ...Read more
After doing pt for bad flare up of torn meniscus twisted it during a workout been painful since. Wait how long before considering other treatments?
Knee surgery: assuming you have an MRI documented meniscal tear, and you have tried PT without improvement I think you should have a frank discussion with your surgeon about the risks and benefits of meniscal surgery; whether it needs to be resected partially (partial meniscectomy) or repaired. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
