Hello From BC Canada

I do pole fitness and fell from a inversion 8 months ago
Was three feet off the ground and lost my grip and fell on my right shoulder and dislocated my right clavicle
I have been off work the hole time in crazy pain can't sleep or do pretty much any thing.
Three weeks ago it moved more out now it feels like it is cutting me and pushing out like a 30 lb brick is tied to me. I have seen three surgeons and now getting surgery May 9 th
It now kills me to walk don't know how I going to make it waiting another three months .
The link I attached explains at the bottom of it going to use ligaments from my leg to tie it back in place

The surgeon I am seeing is Dr Moola out of New Westminster BC Canada
I am very scared cause risky surgery


Ask your MD for a brace to limit your shoulder motion, might help with pain... good luck! And don't be scared it the right side, much better than the left ;)

Did you investigate a good physiotherapist?  I recently (last spring) got to experience a grade 3 shoulder separation.  My clavical was down 2.5 to 3 cm;  three ligaments torn.  Physiotherapy worked for me.  Yes it hurt.  No they didn't prescribe any effective medication (Bastards!).  Yes I spent a lot on $cotch, a night cap every night to get to sleep.

 AC joint separation is not the same as SC joint, bigger possible risks associated with SC, he should be in a brace to minimize motion. I don't know how the law is in Canada, but in the US a PT needs a referral for treatment, direct access is limited to a certain number of visits (varies by state). with a MD already set for surgery, which would indicate that the sprain is severe, I'm not sure how much PT would help other than managing pain

Somehow I posted without seeing that pic of the SC joint.  I did not know it was at the SC end.  I have no experience with dislocated SC joint, and don't want any either.
