doc - went snowboarding and when I got tired I didn't stop and ended up taking a nice face plant.

Fell on my left arm and it felt like I had almost dislocated my shoulder. Like I almost pulled it out of socket. It's been a month and a couple of days since the injury.

Got an MRI and they said it was a labrum tear and it would not heal on it's own, it needs to be anchored. Looks like a 4 to 6 month recovery.

It seems to be getting a little better - not hurting as much. Wondering if the pain will go away with out surgery? Or do I just do the ortho and plan to be out for 6 months? I forget if it was either a .5 CM tear or a .5 CM cyst that had already formed....

fallGuy:

My apologies for my delayed response. I have been buried at work and have not had time to visit the forum. Visit with your orthopedic doctor further about the MRI results and ask him to discuss your options, surgical versus non-surgical. From the limited information that I have, I would be averse to making any further recommendations, and your othopedic surgeon would be the best source. It is okay to ask your orthopedic doctor for a second opinion for discussing your options.

Thanks,
