Call surgeon!: Call your surgeon to find out what to do. The doc who did the procedure will be able to tell you if this is normal at this stage or not. If you are unhappy with his advice, consider a consult with a doc on Healthtap Concierge, or see your primary care doc, who can give an opinion, too, or arrange for a second opinion for you, if necessary. ...Read more
Really depends: Many different procedures can be done to the shoulder during an arthroscopic surgery. If bone spurs removed, shoulder debrided, then pain may be minimal and pass within a few days. If cuff repaired or labrum repaired, pain can persist for a couple of months. Make sure you understand exactly what is being done during your scope. Don't compare your results with someone else's. ...Read more
On 12/27/14 i had an arthroscopic subacromial decompression/bursectomy. Felt great for 6 wks. Now im in more pain and popping/clicking is worse. Why?
See your ORS: Arthroscopic subacromial decompression is unusual for a 28 yr. Old to have without some other diagnosis or primary problem ( shoulder instability, os acromiale, slap tear, etc.)from your hx. I see that you have already had arthroscopic labral repair...Either your shoulder is 'slipping'( subluxating)and / or your labral repair is failing or your joint capsule is 'loose'.

I had subcromial decompression and a floppy tendon repaired dec 2011 and all was well but the last 6 week the pain has returned ?
Time for re-eval.: Return to your surgeon. F/u exam, x-rays and possibly mri/arthrogram may be necessary. Exam may prove symptoms are unrelated. If determined related, then more f/u tests likely. Treatment could be as simple as a return to therapy. Other options could include injections and possibly a return to surgery. Your surgeon is in the best position to determine this. ...Read more
I had shoulder decompression and debridement. Is it normal to still be in pain even 3 weeks later?
Not unusual: Would not expect you to be pain-free at only 3 wks after a shoulder arthroscopy w/ debridement/decompression. The important thing to note is wether you are making progress in terms of regaining your motion/function and are noting a progressive decrease in pain compared to the first week post operatively. ...Read more

Pt has told me I have frozen shoulder.I had a decompression done 8 weeks ago wouldn't the surgeon have seen that in the operation .Have had no results?
Not necessarily: Frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis is a complex condition of the shoulder that involves thickening and contracture of the capsule as well as potential associated tendinitis of the rotator cuff and biceps tendon. There are generally three phases to adhesive capsulitis. Each of these phases can last up to year to year and a half. Arthroscopic release of the capsule decompression of the subacromial space and manipulation under anesthesia can help facilitate recovery but not in every patient. ...Read more
