      Hey…new member here: 

      I joined a few days ago, after seeing some of the MobilityWOD vids. Dealing with a left SLAP tear that required six anchors on Nov. 6. 
      PT released me about four months ago because I’m largely functional, and I’m back training, but dealing with a few little hitches. Haven’t done pull-ups or anything explosive (cleans/muscle-ups) yet. It still gets pretty sore and painful after certain workouts, especially squats, and after hard, heavy bicep workouts, I get some soreness in that bicep region up toward the shoulder. I feel like I have solid scapular stability, but I’m still getting a few “clicks” when I externally rotate. And that internal rotation occasionally causes the slightest amount of pain. 
      I guess I’m wondering if some of this is normal…if anyone else has had this and how cleanly they’ve finished up their recovery from a SLAP Tear. 
      Thanks.

      Hey!

      I had a surgery of SLAP II in my right shoulder 3 years ago. Sadly, my recovery wasn’t as good as yours (i didn’t have any good physicians until 10 months from the surgery). At the moment I can perform any exercise perfectly (I only struggle when doing dips since I can feel some pain).
      Anyway I don’t know what type of SLAP you had. I can perform a healthy life even though I feel pain doing some sports (especially badminton). 
      Good luck!

      Was a 12-6 tear. They didn’t do anything to the biceps. I’m just worried because that hang shape? I can’t do it right at all, and it’s bothersome.

      Also, Deadlifts and pullups scare the crap outta me. Squats give me a slight amount of pain as well.

      Hi ES. I am a few years removed from a SLAP surgery, with a rotator repair as well. I had great care after and was back playing ice hockey in 4.5 months. Not bad for a 45 year old. Anyway, I am fairly new to crossfit, and some of the lifts are giving me some issues, such as heavy overhead lifts. Soreness more than anything, just also concerned with possibility of damaging the repair area. I am back doing full, strict pullups with little pain and deadlifts also. Good luck.

      Good luck. Do exactly what the Dr. says, and follow the rehab. It’s all about the rehab, and finding the right person. Also, did he recommend getting an ice machine for post surgery? If not, def look into. Was huge for me

      I just had a SLAP repair 2 weeks ago. I went off pain meds on day three and used the MarcPro instead of ice. I brought an ice machine home but never used it. I start PT on Wednesday. My best advice is get out of bed, go on walks and get the heart rate up when you are able. Good luck!
