      I really don't know anything about it, but there is a condition called scapular winging. I am sure your doc would notice it. Here is some info though.

      I have had numerous problems, a slap tear was the least of them. It was not repaired, just debrided. None of that matters any more with the reverse replacement. No more labrum! I have also been going to pain management for several years due to the mess. Lidocaine patches are a topical treatment for pain. They are only given by prescription and help a little bit. I also had radiofrequency nerve ablation of the suprascapular nerve. They " burn" the nerve to block pain signals, again, this was done by my pain doc.

      Riderk,
      That is very interesting that you say anything about winged scapula, because I actually googled that last night. After I was writing back to you on here I was remembering that my old PT (PT I had prior to surgery) had told me that he did think that I had "a little bit" of the winged scapula. I originally went to PT due to the back pain and should subluxation. They sent me to this PT thinking that I just needed to strengthen my rotator cuff. This is what I was doing when he told me this. But since then I found out that I needed to have a slap tear repair. I've gone back to PT but it's been for recovery from the surgery. I do wonder what part of my pain now is referred pain or is possible winged scapula issue.
      Thank you for all the information and I will definitely be looking into soaking to my PT and surgeon about this.

      I had a stabbing pain under my shoulder blade for months prior to surgery and after. It went away completely around 10 weeks post-op. I suspect is was from muscle imbalances and compensation.
