Labrum surgery

Gamecock1 ·
My 15 year old son is a LHP and suffered a season ending injury to his left shoulder back in late February. After several weeks of rest and a MRI the orthopedic surgeon at Palmetto Health USC determined he had a SLAP tear to his labrum. We are having surgery today to repair the tear. If anyone has any success stories, advice please don't hesitate to share. I have read numerous articles about this type of surgery and what to expect but would love to get some firsthand knowledge as to how the...

2021 was just diagnosed with SLAP (catcher). Any updates on those who have gone through rehab?

So an update on 2021. Surgery scheduled at Kerlan Jobe. MRI revealed Type 3 tear. The injury happened in season, but X-ray did not reveal damage so 2021 sat out and did 2 months of rehab with no improvement. Only then could we get MRI. Got 2 opinions before electing surgery. While waiting for surgery 2021 DH’d for travel team at JOs and summer tournaments. No pain from either side (switch hitter) but shortened his follow through from the left side. Had pre-op today. Good to read all the...

This guy right here went through labrum surgery in July of 2014 and nerve displacement surgery in May of 2019. He is rehabbing right now, and he is expecting to throw in the low to mid 90's with his fastball, 84-88 slider, and 83 change up. He doesn't know what slowing down means. Also, he has Type I diabetes, so recovery is 10 times harder on him. He would tell you rehab is just as important as the surgery.

After reading all the stories and posts no 2 are the same, but one thing in common is SLAP tears take time. Month 5 after 2021’s surgery for Labrum tear. Recovery has been going well—the first 4 months were filled more with anxiety than pain. Our PT is a baseball friend and has been very deliberate in the exercises he prescribes. A huge weight was lifted when 2021 was cleared to throw and hit again at about the 4 month point. I had not seen a smile so big since he was playing! This week’s...

Quick update on 2021 in month 7 following Labrum surgery. Clean bill of health from surgeon at Kerlan-Jobe—no restrictions! Very exciting for 2021, and he is on cloud 9. But that isn’t the only gate—next up is clearance from his very thorough, deliberate and conscientious Physical Therapist. Throwing has progressed to 150 feet, and he is cleared to swing from left (his natural) side and tells us all he is hitting “bombs” from both sides in BP! But then another dose of reality—we are 1 week...

Hello again. Pause in the action so a time for an update on 2021 in his recovery from labrum surgery in July 18th, 2019 resulting from tear in season in April 3rd, 2019. 2021 returned to competitive baseball on game 3 of his high school season as a DH and was thrilled to be in the line up. In his second at bat he hit his first high school home run! He has been in and out of lineup as DH rules in our league do not allow re-entering games, but he is thrilled to be back helping his team. Then...

GREAT news! Maybe this little pause will be just what he needs to not feel any pressure to rush recovery to the finish line.

We had exactly the same thought, just like the NYYs! Of course that is really trying to make lemonade out of the entire country’s lemon right now. Important to stay positive!

Hoping for the best possible outcome for your son. I had labrum surgery myself, but at age 50 and I don't play baseball, so my experience probably isn't very helpful. Like most of these ortho surgeries, following the prescribed PT is probably the most important factor within his control. Best of luck!

Thanks to those who have responded and expressed their best wishes. The surgery went well and he is home resting. Now begins the long road to recovery. His first PT will be Thursday. The orthopedic surgeon at USC was great as were the nurses and staff at palmetto Richland hospital.

Yesterday was the first day of PT and went as well as to be expected. He was in a good bit of pain but handled it pretty well. My son has an unusually high tolerance for pain which is a good thing I guess, I just hope the mental and emotional stress doesn't get to him. He was able to attend his teams last home game last night and the coaching staff and his teammates were glad to see him. Thanks again for the thoughts and prayers.

It is a long slow recovery process. 9 months to a year. My deepest sympathies over your injury. Michael Pineda came back from it. Despite the headline of the article below, it doesn't have to be a career ender. http://gargoyle.flagler.edu/20...f-most-debilitating/ http://bleacherreport.com/arti...alls-toughest-injury

Are you talking about if you have surgery or no surgery? And are you talking about SLAP tear because a SLAP tear and a Posterior labrum tear is different

Posterior Labrum Tear, after surgery. The articles I linked have some good info, but by no means are the only opinion

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...

My son had the same surgery, and his recovery time was 16-18 months. One suggestion is to get a physical therapist that is baseball specific in this particular surgery. My son had a general physical therapist the first couple of months with little to no results due to scar tissue after surgery. Finally, we found a baseball specific physical therapist to labrum surgery. What a difference, within a few weeks throwing progress was drastic. It was quite painful and extremely strenuous. Best of luck!

here to answer any questions about the injury & rehab process. I am a 10+yr baseball specific PT. Guessing he's around 10 weeks from surgery now? ROM should be getting almost to full, if it's not already. Best of luck to him. Here's my protocol/guideline: http://drchrismckenzie.com/sla...otocol-for-athletes/

Dr. Chris Mckenzie, Our sons protocol mirrored your article precisely. He is working with a PT who worked closely with Dr. Andrews for many years. Son is 6 1/2 months post surgery and is out to 125 Ft. and feels great, says arm feels better than it ever has. We are very grateful we had a PT who knew and had worked with athletes in the past, most notably pitchers.

Two friends of my son's had labrum tears and subsequent surgery. Both are doing well and both are playing for major D1 programs. One is a catcher and one is a pitcher. It's funny as I look at a photo of them together on their 11 U team. The two I referenced had shoulder surgery and my son along with another teammate both had Tommy John. The other kid with Tommy John was drafted and signed. I can tell you I hear more success stories than I do failures. It all has to do with the rehab assuming...

Exciting news for our 2021 who was accepted into Harvey Mudd and will play for Coach Walkenbach at CMS next season! Arm strength continues to return—thanks to daily throwing program his velocity is up to where it was pre-injury. Lots of committed academy, travel and high school coaches helped 2021 be seen this summer by numerous collegiate programs. We are really excited about the fit at CMS! Thanks to all who offered encouragement along the way. The journey from the injury in March 2019...

https://www.sandiegouniontribu...adres-doctor-surgery Here is an article based on an interview with my son’s surgeon and his reaction to Fernando Tatis Jr’s shoulder injury. Bottom line is if you have shoulder pain you should get an expert medical opinion! Surgery worked well for my son and he is playing baseball pain free. Two observations on how the surgery affected my son. Number 1-He now swings with a two-handed follow through protecting his repaired shoulder. No one told him to—I think...

My son tore his labrum in his non throwing shoulder during a BP session at a college camp. The first thing the Ortho said was "I bet you have a violent swing and you finish with one hand". He was correct. Its been almost 3 years now and if he accidentally finishes his swing one handed his shoulder will still remind him to knock it off.
