My shoulder popped out 10 times since 2010. If i don't do the surgery is there any possibility to remain paralyzed? If yes does it guarantee healing?

Paralyzed?: Not sure what you mean by paralyzed. Surgery is done to keep the shoulder from dislocating. With multiple dislocations, need complete work-up to determine best treatment. If there is bone loss on the humeral head and/or socket, you, may need a bone graft. See a shoulder specialist who is experienced with instability surgeries. ...Read more

Is hydrolyzed collagen beneficial in healing frozen shoulder?
Is there any other medication or home remedy for it?

Frozen shoulder can: be caused by any number of conditions that occur separately or in combination. Joint arthritis, prolonged shoulder immobility, bursitis (inflammation of the fluid-filled sac around the shoulder joint) and strained tendons and ligaments can contribute to frozen shoulder. Hydrolyzed collagen isn't likely to help. Your doctor can advise you as to what OTC medications and exercises might help. ...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

What to do for a subluxing shoulder? I've had this for a long time, periodically pops out. Worth the surgery? Hasn't popped out in a couple years.

Possiblly repair: Need for surgery depends on severity- shoulders that frequently dislocate are at risk for greater injury, and are probably not meeting all that is demanded of them. However, if a patient is free of pain and can do all desired activities without dislocation, surgical repair may not be necessary. With recurrent, infrequent dislocation, elective repair would be reasonable. ...Read more
