yes to chip or hairline fracture on the top of the humeral, seeing the ortho doc tomorrow to get more details and schedule PT. My vaca and DG road trip just got f*'d up, leaving next week. Thanks Clonan! I now have more questions for the doc.

Not be be the bearer of bad news but I dislocated my left arm 10 years ago. It has never been the same it pops out even doing the easiest task it is horrible. I can not do any kind of full reach with it any more or it will pop out. It is more serious then you think.

I have a sizable Hills-Sachs lesion, and roughly 10% glenoid bone loss. My surgeon put it at a 5% chance that he will address either when I go in for surgery. A remplissage procedure to address the humeral head defect may severely limit ROM, so in my case, he is shortening and relocating the tendons to further aid in stability above and beyond the labrum repair.

Good luck though. As someone who has gone through it, put all your effort into rehab. It will suck, but the consequences of cheating rehab at all are much worse.

GO TO THE DOCTOR! I messed up my shoulder years ago in a freak archaeology accident, and being young and bullheaded I let it heal up on its own. I still have problems with that shoulder occasionally. It really is not fun sometimes, nothing wrecks a good day faster than intense pain.

Don't be like me, get it sorted out by a professional.

Mine took twice as long to recover at 38 than it did at 23.

After you see an ortho, follow up with the PT... And take that seriously. That's the only advice I've got.
