naw no surgery for me. no health insurance either, but i don't think i would have even with it....

i did my right shoulder first and really badly - the tendon snapped completely and rolled up on top of my shoulder. most painful injury i've had yet and it took over a year to heal up completely....

.... at which time i did my left shoulder. not as bad this time but it still gives me trouble from time to time. i do still have some movement of bones in there (across my chest at the collar bone) but for the most part it doesn't hurt just moving around doing things. its worst if i sleep on it wrong, drive for too long, or try to use my upper chest for any "strength moves" - and sometimes when it starts hurting again it'll hurt for 3-4 days or something.
