    Unhappy Bone spur in right shoulder

    I am scheduled for surgery after months of different docs trying to diagnose my issue. Finally found a great doc who found the bone spur. Cortisone shot helped for about 5 days and my ROM is minimal. My question is that if I decided to not have the surgery to remove the spur, could this cause any further permanent damage?

    Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    A bone spur is not going to go away. It may be tearing the tendons and yes it can get worse. If it is smoothed out you could avoid further damage.

    I agree. I had one and my shoulder doc said if I'd waited much longer before having it removed the damage would have been much worse.

    I'd lost most of my ROM and was in constant pain. I'm almost 5 years post-surgery. I still have the full ROM that returned with therapy after surgery. The surgery really improved my quality of life.

    My surgery was arthroscopic. Because I just had debridement and bone spur removal, I was out of the sling in a few days and healing went well. Within several months, the ROM had returned.
