andie Last season I was in the same place, Ac-dislo. at level 3 (all 3 ligaments), I choose no surgery and I'm overall happy with that. Some morning pain, and thats pretty much it. Tho I really dread thinking about landing on the same shoulder on a 120feet booter

kpd2003 Ah, yes, the dreaded surgery. I broke the outside of my shoulder (clavicle) last year and luckily every doctor I called downright refused to do surgery. At the time I was very angry and thought surgery was the best thing to do because of the pain involved - Now, nearly 9 months later I do have quite a huge "bump" on my shoulder where the bone pops through but I have full range of motion. I constantly hear/read horror stories about shoulder surgery which leave you only needing more surgery in the future. I'm sure as an old man I will be aching but at 22 I am happy with not going the surgery route.

I hope your injury gets a chance to really heal in the next few months - never forget that the body has been mending bones naturally for thousands of years! Good luck. PS- Sue the first doctor for not giving you full information

Graphic Nature *UPDATE* The surgery never took....

A few months after surgery, I noticed that the bone was back in the place prior to surgery. So I scheduled an appointment with the surgen to find out why the bone moved....He told me the band slipped off the bone.

I decided to seek a 2nd opinion, so I went to another orthopedic surgen...after he read the medical report and looked at the xrays from the previous surgen, he came up with this conclusion.......They used a combination of orthoband and cadaver to tie the clavix down. Well, the notched the clavix bone....the orthoband has since fractured the bone and is moving thru the bone like a knife in butter. They said it was a 50% chance that it is done healing and it should be fine, but they dont know until they opened it back up.


If I were to do it all over again, I would not of chosen the surgery route.

Same thing. Forward tumble on ice!

I was bombing the run as a beginner making large carves, came right in my line over the tip of my board and I had no where to go but down.

Yeah, that may be the only downfall is the constant jerk of the rope.

This is week 7 since surgery....I'm really thinking about getting the board back out of storage and hit up the 100"+ of fresh pow that is dumping right now here in the west!!!

Graphic Nature Going on the 3rd week post surgery. Finally ditched the arm sling, very minimal pain, but I still have a slight bump. I hope I never have to deal with this again!

On the bright side, the resort held a t-shirt design contest, that I won! And season passes just went on sale for next season!

Unfortunately I am calling it quits for this season..... So long fluffy white, bring on summer time and wake boarding!
