This is Dr. David

yes, with your prior labrum reapir and current large near circumferential tear in your shoulder, you most likely will need surgery to repair the tear in your shoulder

I'm glad you had an MRI scan

you should see an orthopedic surgeon and get your shoulder injury evaluated.

you should ice your shoulder as often as you can

how did you tear your shoulder?

when is your appointment to see an orthopedic surgeon?
