[p]I am having 5 mm of bone taken off. Hopefully I will be good to go after 3 months to conduct my bands again. Thanks for the encouragement. [/p]

[p]I'm 4 wks post-op and it seems to be getting better. I have three quarters of my range of motion back but no strength. It was a painful after surgery for about a week, then it started to decrease. If you tried all the conservative therapies first, then yes I recommend the surgery. Also if you do have the surgery if will feel a little weird at first until the scar tissue grows in. My physical therapist says total time for the injury to be 100% is about a year, but it depends how much bone they have to take off. He said you can return to work activities if its physical in 6 to 9 mos. I had about a pinkie size of bone taken out because I had alot of trauma and bone spurs. I hope this helps horsediva.[/p]

[p]Horsediva:[/p][br][p]I have also had the same surgery as you are facing. Realize not all surgeries end badly. Pay attention to what your OS tells you to do and not to do. With no repair, you can be out of the sling asap. PT can begin when OS gives the order. Try not to do too much too fast and you should be fine.[/p][br][p]Good luck, Carol[/p]

[p]You should be fine to return to work in three months time. If there is no other repair work done on your shoulder you'll probably be back to normal within a month. I've been back to swimming in less time.[/p]

[p]Also, if I go through with this what can I expect? I was hoping to return to work in September with full use of my shoulder. As I read this I am thinking that that is not going to happen. Any help and advise would be awesome. I am VERY concerned about this. [/p]

[p]I am scheduled for a shoulder decompression/distal clavicle exercion in June. I have read so many things on here with everyone that has had trouble. I am a high school band didrector and can't retire for 18 years. I am very concerned that I will have an unstable clavicle, among other things. Is it really worth the risk of going through with this surgery? I have tried everything, cortison, therapy, ice, etc. Should I just live with it?[/p]

[p]Yes, of course it's normal. It's only been two days after all. In my experience, the pain is worse the second day.[/p]
