I will be having surgery in the next few weeks on my left shoulder for a 3rd time, but have questions. Everything I have from the doctor on what he is going to do is in doctor terms. I was wondering if someone could put these into people terms.[br] [br] 1. open partial acromioplasty[br] 2. open distal clavicle excision[br] 3. arthroscopic subacromial decompression [br] 4. open rotator cuff repair w/ acromioplsty[br] 5. arthroscopic repair of slap lesion( this one is a possibility where the rest will happen.)[br] [br] If anyone can tell me what all of these mean it would be helpful. About How long will I be in a sling, and how long is the recovery period for them? Any information would help so I can stop racking my brain.
