I tore my left shoulder labrum last summer doing decline lat raises (don't ask). Both SLAP and Bankart lesions. Couldn't lift my arm out above shoulder level without a sharp knife pain. Weakness and slippage too. Had the entire thing sewed up and anchors put in about 6 months ago. I'm finally back to lifting full strength now, still with a bit of stiffness that I hope will go away with continued PT. It's a tricky injury and depending on the nature of the tear, the quality of the surgeon, and the style of PT, full 100% recovery can take anywhere from 3 months to a full year. Best of luck to RNH.
RNH's camp said it wasn't too severe.

Do you think that means it might be a shorter recovery time or would it basically be the same as an average tear?
