10-14 days: Would want to check with your surgeon, certainly.

Got discal clavicle resection surgery w/ bicep tendon tear. How long out of work? Gotta go back full duty an able to lift 75 lbs. Thank u for the help
Ask your surgeon: Questions re complications, side effects, recovery, disability, etc should be asked of surgeon along w/ (consequences of) options prior to undergoing procedure. Surgeon should also be informed of your particular requirements, eg return to work, job description, etc in order to make best recommendation. So go ask surgeon who performed distal clavicle resection + bicep tendon repair what to expect. ...Read more
I had a open acj excision of the shoulder day ago, am a little concerned that the clavicle looks higher on the operated side? Is this normal?
What could cause upper back pain between the shoulder blades after first rib resection surgery? Muscular or nerve related?
Possibly both: After a resection surgery you can have scar tissue that develops and pulls on the fascia and musculature disrupting either muscle function or nerves as the brachial plexus is right through this area. If it is between your shoulder blades, you may be looking at a long thoracic nerve issue or rhomboid dysfunction. A trial of PT would help delineate. Best of luck! ...Read more

Extensive Medical: Histories like yours are beyond the scope of what a HealthTap Doctor can helpfully and responsibly manage. If you are needing the procedure, the best sources for your answers are the surgeon, anesthesiologist and your treating physicians. That said, any prior medical issues can frequently interfere with what are generally considered minor procedures so the short answer is yes. ...Read more

I broke my collar bone clavicle in an accident 1 week ago my doctor advised me to wear a brace figure of 8 and suggested me 6 weeks of recovery time..
6-12 weeks: Most clavicle fractures will heal within 6-12 weeks. Many patients will stop having pain by 3 weeks and regain range and motion shortly after that. However, it often takes longer for the bone to actually heal, as seen on an x-ray. Of course, the amount of displacement and angulation factor into healing time.

Rapid but variable: Most initial (1st time) shoulder dislocations, once reduced, allow for rapid rehabilitation and recovery. Motion and strength recovery, though variable, occurs progressively over the 3-6 weeks. Residual instability or a sense of impending recurrent dislocation (or subluxation) is age and activity dependent. Younger more active patients are more likely to complain of recurrence than older patients. ...Read more
Impingement: Bursitis/outlet impingement treatment includes modification of activities that produce pain, nsaids, maintenance of shoulder range of motion. Once pain improves (1-2 weeks typically), exercises to strengthen the rotator cuff are initiated. Occasionally, a cortisone injection into the bursa may be helpful. ...Read more

How long is the recovery time after an operation on a shoulder. I have an exstensive slap tare to the upper librum?
Expect 3 mo therapy: I usually recommend up to 3 months of physical therapy (2 visits per week) after most repairs of slap tears of the labrum. This allows for adequate time for protecting the healing, repaired labrum. If the slap tear is only debrided (torn portion trimmed away akin to a hang nail), the recovery is much quicker and most patients can advance with minimal therapy "as tolerated". ...Read more
