I had shoulder surgery done a little over a month ago, this was to scrape bone spurs and clean out the bursa. How long until I fully recover?

I encourage my patients to start range of motion exercises as soon as the pain subsides (couple of days). I let them do whatever they are comfortable with after a couple of weeks. It generally takes 6-8 weeks for all the tenderness to end. ...Read more

Do I need surgery for fluid in the subcromial/subdeltoid bursa and a high grade partial thickness articulare sided tear supraspinatus tendon?

Do I need surgery for fluid in the subcromial/subdeltoid bursa and a high grade partial thickness articulare sided tear supraspinatus tendon?

Varies: Full thickness tears of the rotator cuff will often retract and not heal; so if someone is young and reasonably active surgery usually optimizes outcome. Partial tears can heal at times without surgery. A high grade partial tear is very close to a complete tear; you would certainly want to be followed closely by an orthopedic surgeon to discuss your progress. ...Read more

I do mma an weight train. I got surgery on my shoulder, 5cm tear on my rotator remove my bursa sac an shaved my collar bone. How did I do it? Thoughts

Injury: Mma is very severe stress on all joints, bones, muscles! Any severe activity/sport can cause serious injuries. Injuries do become easier to get if an athlete takes anabolic steroids. Sure, they help performance, but at a significant price. More injury risk because muscles get too strong for their attachments. Anyway, follow your doctors advice so that you get better. ...Read more

Complicated: Shoulders are very complicated and even a minor injury can cause problems for extended period of time. As long as you are slowly getting better and better, that's ok. If not, may need to see a different pt, work harder at it, or see your doctor again. Swimming is great for getting shoulders back in shape by improving range of motion, and strength of muscles. ...Read more
