[br]if you had an arthroscopic procedure sometimes it needs to be revised to an open procedure to remove more clavicle[br][br]bone spurs do grow back and this is one surgery that open surgery may be better than arthroscopic[br]

I would check out the frozen shoulder forum on this site and see if your current symptoms, or range of motion issues are similar. I developed frozen shoulder 2 months following my DCR, and found the frozen shoulder forum invaluable to helping me understand what I was in for, and that it would eventually be better..

Hello,[br][br]I was diagnosed in may of last year with distal clavical osteolysis and the surgeons belief was it was from wight lifting as my right shoulder had been bothering me for about 8mths prior. I was treated with an injection by the orthopedic surgeon as NSAIDS etc. were just not helping. The injection relieved things about 60% but not completely and wore off fast. After additional x-rays and MRI's he came to the conclusion that surgery was needed.[br]I had my surgery on 9/7, followed all the PT and follow up appoinments etc. yet here we are 3/2 and my pain is back to pre surgery levels, I have degressed. My surgeon is at as loss as he states that everything else was in tip top shape. No tendon issues etc. just the removal of a portion of clavicle.[br][br]Has anyone heard of this? I am right back where I was and haven't even done anything physical nor lifted weights.
