Torn Labrum, A/C joint Osteoarthrosis
I got an arthrogram a couple weeks ago. The report said that in addition to a SLAP lesion, there is "moderate A/C joint osteoarthrosis manifested by cartilage loss, joint space narrowing, subchondrial cystic changes, and some degree of bone marrow edema involving the distal clavicle and acrimon." The doc didn't say much about this except that it's common in weightlifters.
I'm arranging surgery for the labral tear. My question is this: is the osteoarthrosis a part of normal wear and tear for a 38 year old CFer who likes weightlifting or is it something I need to get taken care of? If I put it off am I setting myself up for more serious trouble later?
