So, I dislocated my shoulder while pitching last Monday. I had an MRI done and the results show that I have a torn labrum. Doctor said I could just work on strengthening the area around the shoulder joint and that would definitely help, but he said it most likely wouldn’t fix the problem. He then said that surgery, although it won’t permanently fix it, it will be a more long-term effect.
So, my doctor isn’t a baseball pitcher, so he can give me whatever number of days he wants me to wait, but I want to know from other pitchers who have had shoulder surgery.
How long do you think it will take for me to be pitching again? I know that this season is most likely out of the question, but I want to be pitching right out of the gate next year, if possible.
