2 years ago I subluxed the left (non-operative). The other day it dislocated completely during a hard fall. I had my wife gather my skis, and then skied to the bottom of Vail, picked up my skis with my "good" shoulder and walked to the ER where the kind doc reduced it for me. Been there, done that
I had my shoulder surgeon, who is a good friend, FedEx me a shoulder stabilizer brace and after a few days of snowshoeing, I enjoyed a foot of fresh on Vail today - despite the soreness.
So....another surgery is coming up, followed by 6 weeks of immobilization and then PT.
I know the game, I know the score, and i know what I'm looking at. Am dealing with it pretty well - all things considered - and I just figured I'd use the forum as my shrink.
I hope everyone else has a safe & happy season :) Happy new year and stay safe out there.
