View Full Version : Post Shoulder arthroscopy , pop sound?

18-08-2008, 04:04 AM
I done my shoulder arthroscopy surgery in may. This is wud my MRI says: Severely fragmented and irregular anterior glenoid labrum with partial detachment and extension into the superior labral attachment with a definite SLAP I tear. Chronic anterior glenohumeral synovitis.

I started my rehab 6 weeks post op but till now there is still a pop sound when i execute some motions etc punch my hand forward or raise my hands up. There is also slight pain whenever i raise my hands up

Any idea if this is normal?

Thanks in advance

it is "normal" for your condition,
as time passes by your tendons will strengthen and your shoulder will become more stable, tight and robust, it takes time,
I have been operated 20 months ago and now it feels rather stable and I still need 9 months, so my doctor said. Of course all the cases are not the same but 6 weeks postop is too early.

okay thanks alot! btw its not 6 week post op till now.. has been about 3 n 1/2 month post op already which is why I am wondering.. my fear is that the op was not done properly and I might have to go through a second one to correct it.
