Labrum and Supraspinata Tears
Hello,Yesterday I received the results of an MRI done last week for shoulder pain. The report states that I have a small tear in my Supraspinata, and a larger tear in my Labrum. Both tears are at the point of attachment to and in my upper right arm. The pain has increased from about a 3 to about a 6, with flares to about 8. My question is, do I have any reasonable alternatives to surgery? After reading my description, I’m afraid I already know the answer. I haven’t yet met with my ortho, but would like to know the difference in time to heal if I have the surgery vs. just rest and painkillers. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
