I just had labrum surgery 2 weeks ago on my shoulder with the labrum tore all the way around 8 anchors and slap repair. yesterday i got scared as i got up from my seat lost my balance and fell back into my seat on my shoulder. not really hard but not super soft. i had my sling on and didn't feel any imediate pain. My question is should i be concerned about this or is it really hard to re-injure it. Would i have known if i reinjured it and would there had been alot of pain and would i still be in alot of pain? i just want to make sure because the last thing i want to do is go though rehab just having to do it over.

Hi S24 and welcome to Healing Well's chronic pain forum. We are not drs here and the best thing you can do is call your drs office and ask to speak to his nurse. Let her know what happened so she can visit with the dr about this. I would never rely on anyone's opinion on a question like this except a dr or his nurse. You may not have done a thing but your answer needs to come from a health professional not people on a forum.

Please do let us know what the dr thinks after his nurse visits with him about this. Take care of yourself and please call your dr. Its better to be safe than sorry.

Hi s24!

I just wanted to stop by and welcome you also. I agree with straydog...your question is a very serious one and should be answered by your doctor. Usually we associate pain with something being wrong and that's normally so. But there are plenty of occasions when that isn't true. Broken bones don't always cause pain until there is swelling, some disorders like Fibromyalgia cause pain and there is no damage or injury to cause it, even some kidney disorders cause pain and the best research hasn't found out why and what to do about it. Just a glimpse of why it's so hard to know.

I quick call to your doctor's office should put your mind at ease. Please keep posting and let us know how the healing is coming along. We have quite a few people with shoulder injuries who can give you tips on how they healed over time.
