Iím recovering for an AC joint separation at the moment. Itís been 5 weeks and certain movements are agonizing. Have to wait and see how badly damaged it is but that will take time. I can only imagine what it would be like if it went under the knife.

That's some dose and to be outta work for so long. I've needed knee reconstruction and have put it off for years due to the time needed off work, hence why it now needs a shit load of work, looking back I shoulda just gotten the 1st injury permanently fixed, but stupidly I thought of my job too much, in other words get it done. Hope it goes well and no complications.

I'm guessing that your work is physical having to be out that long.
I would look into doing a course of some sort while out, even something accounts that'll get you certified for a desk job just in case things drag out longer

Guess ya were given the in's and out of tendon Re-attachment. Ya know you run a good risk of a repeated tear in de building game. Recon yer right with the career change, best of luck with operation and that.

He's talkin about Subacromial Decompression Surgery, ffs.

Had been all set to go with it in 15, but pulmonary issues later called sarcoidosis put a stop to it.

Huh ! The guy is self employed, if he can spanner on a scaldy bag of shite I'm fairly certain he'll use his health to go back to work. Did ya not see he mightened be able to even raise his arm for a few months. Maybe the UN undervalued the amount of CO2 out your part of the world !!

Getting enough sleep is the key to recovering, if you find it hard to sleep get the doc to give you some oxy, they got me the rest I needed after my last surgery which kept me off the bike for about 8 months
