PT is a must! Young or old!!! You want to be able to shred 5-10 years from now, right? I had same exact injury 5 yrs ago, 3rd deg sep, followed docs orders, did physio, no issues since. Blew my right knee out twice years before the shoulder injury, scoped 2 times, didn't do all I could/should have done, still have issues with the knee. Case and point. Young and invincible=sore knee. Old and....sum thin...wiser...no that's not it...anyways you get my point=shoulder good to go. Good luck and get well. If you do decide to go, which I probably would (see, definately not wiser!
) take it easy and fall soft
