Recurrent shoulder dislocation.

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey everyone,

I dislocated my left shoulder in a bike accident(along with a fractured femur) about an year ago. Reports said i had an "SUBCORACOID ANTERIOR DISLOCATION". Everything was fine until i had another dislocation on the same left shoulder because of severe cough while i was asleep. Had to rush at midnight to the nearest hospital. Why is this recurrent? Should i be worried? Im 24years old and  afraid to lift weights(worried of another dislocation). Help please

Thanks.

    After disIocating my left shoulder as well, MRI showed anterior & posterior labrum tear, that is why my shoulder kept dislocating multiple times. The more it happened the more the labrum tore.

    Had surgery around 2010, then unfortunately one year later in 2011, was informed the first surgery didn't take and had to redo it. Nightmare. Then had my third surgery July 2017 for rotator cuff repair. This third one was the worst in terms of pain and recovery time. Still dealing with some of the after effects. Hope and pray to never go through any of this again! All the best with what you are dealing with.
