Would surgery be suggested if MRI results are:
1. Postsurgical changes consist of pt's prior labral tear or fixation are noted.
2. There is some attenuation of the supraspinatus tendon without tear.
3. There is a undersurface partial tear of the distal infraspinatus tendon.
4. Prominent subchondral cyst as described is identified.
5. There is a partial tear of the biceps tendon with the intra-acticular portion.
6. Mild fraying of anterosuperior labrum without frank tearing, change could be postsurgical.

Prior surgery in 2010 to repair two labral tears same shoulder.  
I have been extreme pain for past 6 months and being treated for fibromyalgia since January 2011.

Hi there!

Well, if these were acute changes, or the symptoms were/ are recent, a conservative approach with rest, anti-inflammatory medications and physiotherapy would be advised. However if the symptoms persist despite adequate conservative management, a surgical approach may be considered. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
