First thing he says to me is that I need surgery and im out for the season. Fuckin big bummer to hear. So months later, I got my surgery last week, a screw in my bone and a ton of pain killers later, Its feeling a little bit better. Didnt realize how much freaking pain it was going to have. Get my stitches out today, and then casted for 7 weeks. Its probable a stupid move to ride, but I am a confident rider, and dont fall unless I'm in the park pushin myself. Ima take it easy and enjoy the rest of the season, just havin fun. wish me luck!
It is a little crazy to ride while your fracture is healing. If you fall on your wrist you can re-fracture through the metal hardware and revision surgery is more difficult and results are sometimes worse after a second surgery. Plus you have increased risk for infection with multiple surgeries. It is probably not worth the risk. Good luck.

Update to my story: Turns out after an MRI 3 days ago I have a "mild cortical impact fracture to the posterior of the humeral head, with undulation to the cortical margin and some adjacent marrow edema." It didn't show up on xray, so now I have to go back to the orthopedic doctor to talk about treatment. I had been going to physical therapy before I had gotten the MRI (as instructed by my orthopedic doctor), which consequently is preventing it from healing. My primary care doctor ordered the MRi because I was having really intense pains almost 2 weeks after the injury.

It sounds like your radiologist is describing a Hill-Sachs lesion. They are common with anterior shoulder dislocations.

Update to my injured knee....

Got the MRI this week and the results on Friday. Only have a sprained ACL, but still have to do awhile at Physical Therapy. Hopefully the doc clears me to ride before the season is over. I will be upset if I have to wait 3 years(Moving to Hawaii) to be able to ride again. Just dont want my last run to be the time I got injured....

Broke my first bone today. Was hitting this 20' flat box at my local mountain, grouse, and 180'd onto it and proceeded to 180 off but I fucked up and broke my fall with my collar bone. After getting x-rays earlier today I was told I most likely need surgery. Probably gonna be needing pins to set it back in place. My fracture shifted vertically and horizontally. It burned so bad when it happened and I felt like I was about to puke. Not a pleasant experience I must say, showering is a bitch haha.

Strained one of my stomach muscles after a big wipeout on the bunny hill, trying to heelside stop to avoid somebody who just decided to sit there and didn't crawl out of the way after falling--it was a teenager too so you'd think they'd know better abourt getting out of the way. Thought I had the wind knocked out of me. Took a break then I got up and kept going for the rest of the day. The next day I was so sore and there was a sharp pain on the right side of my stomach. I did a few skating jumps on the floor since I land on my right foot to see if I was good to go to my lesson that morning, and i could feel the sharp pain....decided to take the week off from riding and figure skating. Didn't help that I got bronchitis that week so it killed me to be coughing and I'm sure it didn't help the pulled muscle get any rest neither. I didn't see a doctor about it, just took a wait and see attitude. After a week the pain subsided (also my bronchitis) but it still hurt to sleep on my right side and be doing core exercises laying on my back. I was able to ride and skate again because the pain wasn't there unless I was laying on my back or sleeping on that side. All in all it didn't go away until after a month total.

I've ate a lot of shit this season (not literally). I've really stepped up my snowboarding and progressed alot this season. I've been going big... no pain no gain right? Anyways i've been super loucky and must be pretty flexible or something because I've walked away with just a huge ass bruise on my left hip.

I know my friends have seen some of my bails and are like how the hell are you still alive!? I guess i'm just good at falling
