Originally did my right shoulder in way back in February was able to ride without much pain. Two weeks ago, lost grip in the middle of a drop and landed square on said shoulder, had a first opinion a couple of days after and it was confirmed that I tore my ant. part of my rotator cuff, but said I could still ride, but since then, each ride has been really painful. When I was back in NJ for a couple of days I had a second opinion and the doctor wanted to schedule surgery. I can take pain, but not until November, matter as well get it done now, before more damage is done.
