it's going to fall off after surgery due to infection anyway so hopefully he's ambidextrous.

people never realize how much they use something until it's messed up. hope all works out for you.
You'll love the MRI that's sure to come. Mine took 45 mins first 20 were ok last 25 sucked. Stuck in the tube can't move but hey you can pick your music.

Do yourself a favor and research ART or active release therapy. http://www.activerelease.com/ Then find a doctor/chiropractor that works on pro athletes.

I had ART done on my right shoulder about 12 years ago. I think I had three or maybe four sessions done. It worked great.

I had shoulder/rotator cuff injuries from playing waaaayyyy to much baseball from 14-21, lifting too many weights, and finally wrecking a crotch rocket. For me it was at a point where I had constant pain in my right shoulder, down my right bicep and my neck. I just lived with it for many years.

The injuries caused my right bicep to never grow even though I was a workout junky. I was right handed but my left bicep dwarfed my right in both size and strength. I could curl 55lb dumbbells for sets of 10 STRICT reps with my left arm and would struggle with 25lbers on the right side. I could not do any kind of overhead lifting at all.

A strength and conditioning coach at GVSU turned me on to ART after watching me lift one day and it cured the problem I had been dealing with for many years in a matter of weeks.

I would highly recommend you at least do some research on this technique before going down the surgery route. One word of warning... I hope you are HALF as tough in real life as your online persona is if you choose to try ART...as it is extremely painful.

I will definitely look into it.

I don't know if I am tough, but I have a pretty good tolerance for pain.

See if they will do an MR Arthrogram this will be the best test to look for tears in your shoulder.
BTW you need xray (fluoroscopy) to get the contrast into the shoulder for this test.

Not surgically. I continued on in PT (holy shit that stuff gets expensive), visited my doc again to discuss surgery with him, and made a visit to my chiropractor.

Came to the conclusion that if it injures/acts up again that surgery will be the best option at the time. For now it has actually and FINALLY began to heal up pretty well....I've gone almost 2 months 80+% pain free. We'll see how it holds up.
