    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I should say that I always check out all my options in terms of soft-tissue work before going anywhere else. I would seriously consider visiting an osteopath and seeing what they think.

    from what i recall when i had my tests, put both your arms out straight infront of you and turn your palms so that they are facing directly away from each other, then get someone to push straight down on your wrists, not too hard, if there is bad damage you will notice that you cant keep your arm up, however hard you try, apparently its quite a common injury for people not to realise they have...

    ^^ Most likely O'brien's test for superior labrum. There are literally dozens of differentiating tests for the shoulder, none of them are conclusive on their own. I generally do at least ten different ones on my patients (I'm a sports physio who works a lot with professional rugby players so I see a lot of shoulders)

    To summarise Backdraft

    - get an MRI before you have surgery

    - keep doing the exercises but you need to progress them. You may have just been given a standard set of exercises for the average guy. If your physio has no expertise with athletes who do contact and collision sports then see one who does.

    - as Hands said, you should make sure you see a specialist in shoulder surgery, not just a general orthopaedic surgeon.

    Good luck

    Thanks a ton for the advice everyone.
    I'll keep at my stability exercises, and eventually, I'll try to get a hold of a shoulder specialist and someone to progress my exercises.
    I say eventually because I fucking hate swedish health care. (And I hate them because they took 2 damn years to schedule me a goddamn appointement.)
    Again, thanks a lot.
