hello, When i was younger (around 14/15) i injured my shoulder during a ski accident in a terrain park. Throughout the the past years i have had a problem with a chronic dislocating shoulder and looking into surgery at this point in time. The only problem is that I don't know if I should have a surgery of this kind before I go back to school in September and before this winter season? has anyone had a surgery to repair a dislocating shoulder recently and how much Physical Therapy was needed plus how long did recovery actually take? also has anyone been able to do exercises to stabilize their shoulder and possibly prolong the time to actually get this surgery done. (if you have any good exercises you know of let me know as well) I have to make a decision soon about when to have this surgery (either this summer or next) so any insight would be great! thanks so much!
