Customer Question
I had shoulder surgery...

I had shoulder surgery 12/27/16 for 2 labrum tears and a rotator cuff tear. I did nothing to cause the damage, just bad luck and some Drs think that I have Ehlers Danlos syndrome. I have still had pain & passed out multiple times from Low BP (POTS). My new MRI shows, 1. Acromion type 2 w/minimal lateral downsloping. Mild acromioclavicular capsular hypertrophy.

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Have you been feeling dizzy or lightheaded?

2. I saw my general MD last week for a UTI. I see a pain specialist & a Headache specialist @ OHSU often. Frequent migraines, fusions C5-6, L 4-5, etc (I am 45)

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

New small non-distracted tear caudal aspect post. inf. quadrant labrum.

The PA did NOT sound optimistic when he finally called me. I am waiting BC/BS clearance to go in & get a cortisone injection & to talk about the OBVIOUS INJURIES! I'd like to be better informed before I go. I am an RN and studied as much as possible but just don't understand it all. It sounded from the PA that I'm looking at another (PAINFUL) surgery. I am afraid that it sounds like I will require some artificial parts if not an entire shoulder replacement.
ANY help understanding would be great.

I can send the before MRI report from last year as well as the OP report & this MRI if it would help. I just don't know how. I can send photos to a phone number?

I just came online and saw your question unanswered for long.

Are all of your shoulder movements painful and restricted?

What is your pain severity?

Please post your MRI reports here.

My pain scale at rest is usually 3. During some motions, most motions a 6-7. I'll try to add the newest MRI here. Thank you so much.

How many days of physical therapy and deep electrotherapy were done post surgery?

Were your symptoms before the surgery got resolved initially?

When did the pain and restriction of the movements reappear?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
