    Shoulder: Anchors popping out of the bone (Pictures)

    ]Hey, I have had 7 shoulder surgeries. The procedures include 2 capsule shifts and a scapcap (muscle) repair. I have multiple anchors in the shoulder and I am wonder if they could be causing my pain. In the pictures below you can see the anchor just popped out of the bone and took a huge chunk of bone with it. Could my body be rejecting the anchors and be causing my pain?

    Yikes, those pictures don't look good. If the same doctor did all the work and the follow up MRI, perhaps it may be time to get a second opinion? Take care,
