Hi All,

Have just got the results of an MRI scan for a shoulder injury, the report back was "avulsion posteroinferior labrum right glenohumeral joint", basically a tear to the bottom and rear of the labrum.

It's looking likely the surgery will be needed. Does anyone have any experience of this particular injury? All can find online is the common types (SLAP etc.) however according to the orthopaedic surgeon it's a more annoying place to access, so i would assume longer recovery time/less likelihood of success.

Current plan is to continue with light climbing and physio for the next few months till i have an appointment with a specialist to assess if surgery is the best option at this time.

Thanks

Did you have a private hospital MRI?... If so how much did it cost you?

You might find some info on Training Beta. The host, Neeley Quin, had a labrum tear and discusses it a fair bit particularly when talking with physios.
