Default SLAP(tear) your Momma

Hello everyone:

I'm not a regular poster (most anything I desire to know I can do a quick search), and I rarely contribute because I know very little compared with others on this board.

I had a type II slap tear repaired at the end of April, so I'm about 4 months out. I'm just looking for others experience (or secondhand knowledge) of what my life in the gym will be like when I return? I know certain things are out, or are they? Short story: I'm looking for someone to tell me "You'll be OK." Any takers?

Just listen to your surgeon and physical therapist. You should be fine to get back to activity though.

One of the SLAP lesion guys I know (pitcher) is back to pitching again. Just do what you gotta do with rehab, and you should be fine.

Definitely listen to your PT hopefully you have a PT that has worked with athletes. There is a difference. I am in PT right now and it is amazing what I have learned and been able to put into practice in a very short period of time.

The diesel crew shoulder rehab - prehab stuff is incredible. I actually got my PT doing some of the exercises from it.
