    i have a procedure scheduled for later this month. doc doesn't know what's wrong with me, he suspects the labrum, but the mri came back clean so he's like :hsughno:

    i'm gonna get scoped to clear bursitis and look for tears in the tendons, rotator cuff, and labrum. he made it sound like it's no big deal other then the sheer amount of time it takes to get back to normal activities, i guess you have to be really gentle with it to not re-injure anything.. is there anything else i should know?

    Prepare for a excruciatingly painful hell called rehabilitation.

    Sounds like a good doc. I see no issues on an MRI, but fuck it let's operate anyway and see if we can make one. :o

    he's good.. but he said at this point i either commit to lifestyle changes or get scoped. therapist said the same thing :hs:

    edit: as for the labrum, doc said contrast mri catches it 90% of the time.. i may or may not be a part of the 10%. therapist thinks the labrum is fucked. going in for a second opinion next week with another sports guy.

    Good luck man, I think everyone who trains like we do will eventually have shoulder issues.

    I can't tell you how many times some older guy tells me about his shoulder issues in the gym, probably every time I am working out. :(
