I dont' know if I'm paranoid or not, but I'm always scared that I re-damaged or re-tore my labrum. It's only been 2 weeks after surgery and it still hurts but not in severe pain where I need my pain meds

If I redamaged it, would it hurt A LOT? Or would I not know and it'll just hurt like usual?

THanks all :)

brinycbri, We are not doctors and thus we can't make that kind of a diagnosis. Did you do something you should not have done? Did you fall? Did you do something else that could have damaged it? I would suggest that if you think you did something, you can call your doctor's office and tell them what happened and describe the pain and let them make the call if they think you could have damaged it. Also, when is your next follow-up doctor's visit? If it is not too far away, you could also wait until then unless the pain is too great.  You state that you still have pain but not enough that you need pain meds. What you could be feeling is pain from the surgery which would be common. I hope all is well and there has been no damage as who wants to go through surgery unless thay absolutely have to.

Hi Briny,

You really need to go see your surgeon. He/she is the only one who can answer this question for you -- though an exam and/or MRI. However, two weeks post-op is not long at all, and pain is to be expected, especially as you increase your activity level. But only a doctor can tell you whether or not the pain you are experiencing is normal.
