Labrum tear, Hills sach lesion and slap tear

Hi All

Had a small off 4 weeks ago and i mean small I've seen drunk guys fall over worse and finally seen the specialist today. News was not good The whole labrum is torn at the front.The bicep is hanging there by a thread.
Specialists words were

Physio and build the shoulder muscles up could pop out if hit. Riding bikes is a risk as any hard hit or deflection could do more harm than good.Cant cast a fishing rod as it hurts with the flick.

Or surgery then Sling for 4 weeks then rehab. Surgery consisting of sutures.
And detaching the bicep and reattaching lower giving me the popeye looking bicep muscle.

My question is has anyone had these exact problems ? If so how long did it take till you were back working and riding ?
As i have searched the net and some are saying 12 weeks and others are saying 12 months..Worried as I'm self employed.
Thanks
Rich

This repair is the longest recovery of all procedures due to the complex nature of the shoulder joint
Go the SLAP, get it done, get it over with, take the time for recovery, yes 6 weeks in the sling, lots and lots of physio, don't rush it, dont try too much too soon...it will take 12 months for a full recovery, but then you'll be back, bigger and stronger than before...make sure the surgeon has proven results....
Physio, exercises, creams etc won't fix the problem, they merely delay the inevitable surgery...been there done that...all good now, popping monos and throwing balls, surfing, snowboarding, casting a fishing rod, doing up sump plugs nice and tight....
I know the "time will never be right", so just book the surgery and go....

Not to be a smartarse Rich but as a sole-trader with a family and riding bikes...Income insurance mate.

Cams advice is good advice, I had that injury in 2000. Get it fixed or you'll only re-damage it at work.

Smartarse comment all good didnt take it to heart . I wish i did have insurance . But too late for that now i think since I've been to the doctor already. Is this the case ?
How long did it take you to get back to work or even riding Pete ?

I was straight back to work after the rehab, about a week or so. I was teaching trade boys at the time so they put me on theory lectures, no shop. Easy peasy.

I did it on Anzac Day and rode again October long weekend. So frustrating for the first two months or so, then it improved quickly. Prick of an injury Rich, good luck with it.
