I just went through this. Ended up being arthritis and bone spurs in the AC joint. Labrum tears and rotator cuff tears. My biggest problem was a biceps tendon problem.
I found a fantastic doc who explained labrum repair after age 40 usually yields disappointing results. Mainly because they are from long term degeneration rather than a clean tear. So he just cleaned it up. He also did a procedure where he ground down the bone spurs and arthritis. My biggest problem was the biceps tendon where it went through that AC joint.
You may have covered all of this with your docs but just letting you know I've been through it recently in case it helps. You are welcome to ask questions.
And to the original post, congrats on the first trip. Those PA's look like a bunch of fun.
