    bicep tenodesis and/or labral tear repair for middle age or

    Hello, have you or any swimmer(s) you know had a bicep tenodesis and/or labral tear repair? How did it go? Especially in swimmers over the age of 40. Also curious if anyone has had a coracoid impingement surgically corrected.

    16 months ago: rt shldr chondral debridement, LHBT tenodesis, with 3 anchors. Not full strength back yet but function better than before. One symptom still present from prior to surgery which I believe to be from nerve compression. I’m 53

    My left shoulder is much worse, I just don’t want to go through the surgery BS quite yet

    Had bicep tenodesis and full rotator cuff repair two years ago. Rough rehab and a full year to feel confident with everything. I wasn't swimming until a few months ago, but no problems and feels better than it has in a long time. I'm 44.

    i recall you were doing pull-ups in few months, and swimming 50 fly at a meet. Meanwhile, I was just kicking the sling habit at this stage. I guess the title “sickfish” says it all - lol

    Yeah I was really aggressive. Maybe that's not for everyone. And on that one I was only 37. The second one took slightly longer before I could do fly pain-free. But surgery in November, meet in February. Did pretty well too: https://www.usms.org/comp/meets/meet...0180209MYRBCHY

    I’m 70 as of last week
    I had been fighting pain in the front of my right shoulder for 3-6 months, it would go away after I stretched out my arms under water while standing at the end of the lane. I could then swim a mile!
    After some time I noticed it was difficult to hold my iPhone while laying on my back in bed at night.
    I made the mistake of not getting a doctor referral anc went direct to PT. It appeared I was making headway but I finally went into the doc apt I had waited for = 5 weeks!
    Got an xray
    Got an mri

    To be continued
