Dislocation of shoulder post-op.
I first dislocated my right shoulder in a rugby accident almost 2 years ago. It was relocated in the hospital, but unfortunately I was not given enough/correct physio. So naturally it dislocated again abroad, this time relocating by itself. It lost mobility very quickly and was kept in a sling until I got to a hospital several days later. I had it checked up privately when I got back and was told I had torn the labrum. I had key hole surgery (an Arthroscopic Stabilisation) to repair the labrum. This was followed by extensive physio.
Not the bad news. On the 21st April 2011 I dislocated my shoulder again at 5500m climbing up the mountain Huayna Potosi in Bolivia (stupidly we were trying to ice climb up the sides of a glacier, this was not necesary to reach the top). Fortunately it relocated and I was able to complete the climb.
In contrast to the second dislocation, my shoulder regained mobility extremely quickly. I am not too sure why this was. I immediately iced the shoulder and began stretching it in the evening, both of these things I had not done the time before. I have not had it checked up since, I only returned from my travels a few weeks back and the speed with which it recovered assured me that I was in no immediate trouble. I am unsure whether the labrum would have torn again. Is it possible to dislocate without tearing anything or am I just kidding myself? I would love to avoid another operation.
Do you think it is only a matter of time until it dislocates again?..or is it possible it is fine. Should I be able to hang/ rock climb on my shoulder?
I know this is alot of questions, but if anyone has opinions I would love to hear them.
