I\'m ten days post-op from type 2 slap repair. maybe I\'m being overly worried but today I went to put on my shirt and inadvertently raised my arm a little too high and quickly...not straight overhead or anything but it was a quick jolt of pain and now i have a subtle dull ache with no pain killers. I just want to check that this is probably normal for what I did and that I did not setback my healing process! how robust are the sutures to handling these type of things?
Being 10 days post surgery, a re-injury is unlikely with mild active movement. However with the development of new symptoms/ aggravation of symptoms, it might be a good idea to consider a review with the treating orthopedician just be sure that everything is fine.
Hope this is helpful.
