    Rotator Cuff - Teacher

    Hi friends,
    I just had an MRI yesterday, which found a tear of the posterior inferior labrum and posterier superior labrum, a small partial thickness tear of the infraspinatus tendon at the humeral footprint, and bursal surface fraying, and small near full thickness tear of the anterior fibers of the supraspinatus tendon at humeral footprint.

    I don't know this terminology. Is this going to be a major thing to recover from??

    I haven't went over this with surgeon yet. Thoughts from anyone. Surgery recovery time?? I've taught for 23 years. I teach K-6 remedial reading. So my classes aren't huge. It's my right shoulder, of course I'm right handed.

    Note: I had an artificial disc put in my neck in Dec 2018 between C5-C6.

    Thanks for any input!

    Lesions on shoulder MRI?

    So, an addendum on my shoulder MRI stated:
    “ In the area medial to scapula, no enhancing lesion is seen. No mass lesion is evident, although assessment in this area is limited.”

    Can anyone explain “lesion” in simple terms?? Why would this be added?

    My MRI determined, partial thickness tear infraspinatus tendon and small near full thickness tear at supraspinatus tendon.
    Full tear at posterior inferior labrum and posterior superior labrum.

    Thanks,
    Cactusjuice

    Re: Lesions on shoulder MRI?

    Dear cactusjuice,

    No lesion means that there is no abscess, wound, tumor or ulcer. That is good. The tear is not diseased or 'sick'.

    Torn tissue can heal fast or slow. There is no way to predict exactly.
    The younger we are sometimes the faster we can heal.

    It does no good to fret or get anxious.
    Rather ask exactly what you need to do to recover and follow the doctor's directions. If more questions come up, be sure to consult with your doctor.

    A lesion is something that shouldn't be there. The fact that it is "not present" is a good thing.

    I had rotator cuff surgery and was unable to use my arm for 3 weeks...after that it was minimal use. PT helped and it took a good 4 months before I was back to my normal routine.
