I got this diagnosis yesterday -- it's a stage or so less serious than a dislocation, but the shoulder has been forced somewhat out of kilter and I'm on pain meds and antiinflamatories. It seems that the initial injury from a crash 4 weeks ago got worse somehow and the joint slipped, and my recovery process took a major nosedive. Doc says I'll need physio rather than surgery, which I suppose is good, and I'm getting an appointment next week for the fracture clinic, which will take another look and work out what to do.
I realize each injury is different, but has anyone been through this one and can anyone offer any advice? I'm normally pretty active, with biking, hiking, skiing, gym, and and will mention that to the orthopod next week. But the thought of being without all that is pretty depressing. Any clues on recovery time, and what I've got to "look forward" to?
