    Well, I finally had it done... had shoulder surgery. It has been messed up from sports and work over the last 18 years. Definitely hasn't gotten any better. Figured might as well get it done at 40 vs 60... Here's a breakdown of what happened..

    Prior to the surgery, the MRI showed:
    • 80% tear in rotator cuff
    • 30% slap tear in labrum
    • Partial tear in bicep's tendon
    During the surgery, it was discovered that the MRI showed a false report on the rotator cuff but there was still a small tear in it. It not being torn 80% is huge plus as this would have been a tough healer...

    The only procedure that was done was the cutting of the bicep's tendon and anchoring it into the shoulder and cleaning up of the labrum, rotator cuff and bone spurs.

    I will let you know how it all heal ups! Does anyone have any experience with shoulder problems? How did it turn out?

    Good luck. Long slow recovery. My brother had the same thing done and was back doing pull-ups at 5 months. Have patience!

    You're almost at the turning point. I had the same procedure done as well as some bone shaving. Pain should get better for ya the next two weeks.
