    Yes. This was the major part of my shoulder surgery this past winter. There were a couple other things torn and repaired while they were in there. Since my surgery the day before Thanksgiving, I have gained 95% mobility and about 90% of my strength back. Doc said he would take a while and he was right.

    Injury that caused it? Or a long term that made you go in?

    Git'er done, Flathats. I haven't had this done, but have ongoing issues with shoulders, and may be next in line. Best of luck to you.

    It was the fall off the mule last July caused by the hikers dog barking and running towards us.

    After the MRI the doctors told me I had had an previous old separated shoulder and possibly a torn rotator cuff from that injury which over time healed somewhat. They saw gouges from bone on bone contact. Said this was probably 30 years ago type injury. I don't ever remember separating my shoulder though prior to last July's accident I had pain in my shoulder and was more evident when I rode motorcycle or mule. When not riding either, I never felt pain.

    After the accident it was a good thing I went in. Had I not done anything it would not have healed properly on it's own and I would have had permanent shoulder damage I would have felt the rest of my life. And I would have been weaker in that shoulder which is my dominant side.

    Yep. Blew my shoulder out playing hockey and over the next year and half it became sloppy. When it got the point it would dislocate once or twice a game .... I decided to call the season short and get it fixed up. I was only 18 and playing at a high level so I was very hard on my body in general.

    My surgery was a day activity with a 2-3 days overnight stay and then home and onto physio. The worst part of the whole thing was the sling design ... it support your arm and wrapped around your midsection so you had to wash your armpit with a toothbrush. Oh and my car at the time was a manual, so I had to employ my best friend as a chauffer for the summer.

    After a summer of rehab and physio it was back to normal and I was back on the ice playing at the same level with no issues.

    Fast forward to now 20 years later its still pretty good .... once or twice over the years I had a "oh shit" moment where I almost dislocated it again, and my range of movement is limited at full rotation by a few degrees compared to my other arm. But the strength/dependability is there and everything works as it should. Honestly I don't think about it much and this is probably the most thought I have given it in many years.

    Cheers,
    Ian
