Question - SLAP TEAR (2-11 o'clock)

by Wayne Slack

My name is Wayne Slack I am a 42 yr old Male in the US. Navy stationed in Bahrain. My MRI revealed a 2:00-11:00 position tear. Is this a bad tear?

How long would it take to recovery from surgery? Is surgery required?
If surgery is not required could I hurt it even more by doing push-ups?

Thanks for any assistances you could provide and have a great day!
