Shoulder Arthroscopy Repair surgery is this normal??

My shoulders are fully fcked to the point where when i saw the consultant surgeon he said there is so much going on in there I am not sure which is causing the most pain/problems etc. So he said we will go in have a look then fix whats bust on an ad hoc basis... He mumbled something like Labrum repair , Bachial repair then look at my broken collar bone and why my shoulder blades pop out instead of sliding to the slide. 
 
I have my pre op tomorrow but I just called the clinic for more info about recovery times and just the procedures in general but the nurse didn't have a scooby about what or when (no set time for it) was about to happen or the recovery. 
 
Is it normal just to bowl up get cut open and then wake up with a set of instructions or should i ask to speak to the surgeon again? Its fine I am not bothered as it needs to be done so if they have ti reattach my arm then so be it but would just like to plan as no doubt will mean time of work and in a sling at the very least.

    The surgeon normally give you a debrief after the surgery , mine did this three times.  Luckily you are having arthroscopy, I had mine done open and that means detaching and reattaching deltoids and now its always a worry when pressing that it will snap.
     
    the two arthroscopies I had recovery was 10-14 days ( unless there's internal stitching which they might keep you immobilised for 4-5 weeks)  open surgery I was out for 8 years and it hasn't felt right since.
     
    Before you go in make sure you imac your arm pit , first time I went in they shaved me with what looked like a tuna tin lid and it was severely itchy growing back , which is even worse when your immobilised as you cant scratch it

    Cheers Doc tbh I think there will be some internal stitching as its to repair something plus whatever else turns up. From speaking to the guy he seemed to think this was more exploratory than anything else but I guess will see. Just thought it odd I was about to get cut up without knowing what was going on.

    if they have found stuff on xrays and done the clunk tests it would probably be a waste of time doing a scan if you've already proved you need surgery . please remember the armpit, ive had the snip and its far worse than itchy balls !!!!

    The X rays just showed the old breaks and the MRI was where thickening and thinning had occurred. Im going to wax back shoulders neck etc anyways because its my right shoulder and being right handed I am expecting to be spacko for a few weeks. He did say he thinks it may end up open anyways which i don't mind so long as its bloody fixed.
