Just saw your post. My son, a sophomore in college had a slap tear and had surgery on November 23, 2016. He is a RHP, he got a medical redshirt and plans to be back in the game this fall. It is a long and tough recovery but just follow the Pt's protocol and he should be good to go. Son is now throwing from 90 Ft with 3 sets of 25 throws. So far so good with no setbacks. He has stayed in the game by coaching his HS JV team and now will be coaching a summer squad as well. He participates in the workouts and is preparing himself for the fall. From what I've been told it takes a full year if not longer to get back to 100% for a pitcher. Son expects to be able to play infield with no limitations by end of June. He has worked hard at rehab and as soon as he was able to get into the gym, he did and worked 3 days a week. Tell son to keep head up and to take it a day at a time. Best of luck to him. Just a FYI, PT had son throwing at about 16 weeks post surgery. He waited longer than he had to as the surgeon released him to throw but PT had no reason to rush into it and wanted to strengthen shoulder a bit longer. Hope this helps.
