Hope it doesn't ruin the rest of your (riding) summer!

You kids are something else Did you do it in the canoe race
I have seperated mine twice. Once at your age, heeled pretty quick and once at 35, took forever to heal and has never been the same since. I have gotten back to strength by lifting very easy, stretching and adding weight slowly, very slowly. But I still can't sleep on that side of my body. It seems like it wants to slide out
Take it easy, ask your orthopede about stretching and excercises for rehabing.

Actually, the cannoe race went quite well. We finished in second, but after the race a bunch of friends and I had a softball game. Hadn't even been drinking yet and I dove for a ball and stuck my shoulder in the ground(I did catch the ball though). I would have much rathered a good wreck on my 400.

Thats exactly what my doctor said. Let it go, youll have a big bump, and they can perform a surgery if need be when I get old. I have a lot of years before I hit Gramps age though.
00', thats the worse part of it. The story is pretty lame.
Thanks for the link. Im gonna do some more research today. Im still al little worried because the ER doctor kinda scared me. He said I had three choices... 1. wear a regular sling for 4 weeks and hope for the best... 2. wear some other kind of sling for 8 weeks.. or 3. get surgery and get it fixed right the first time. I think I may go get a second opinion.

I got a second opinion and it was the same as the first. The second gut recomended against surgery. My shoulder feels just as good as the other one. I have had zero problems with it once it healed. They are a strange injury. I remember it feeling fine and went Mtn. Biking and too a good jolt just from landing a jump and the pain was incredible. Give it time . It took me 6 or 8 weeks, something like that.
How's the ankle? Feeling better than the shoulder I bet. You are having a rough summer.
