Hey, Shannon, I'm a bit behind the times, but I just heard (read) about this... I'm really sorry! That sucks! I'm really glad you are still around!

Feel better soon!

Ms Shannon,

I was saddened to learn of your most recent accident.

Although I do hope that you make a speedy recovery, I would like to remind you that sometimes patience is in order. It is understandable that the upcoming warm weather combined with the support of your motorcycling friends will tempt you into not giving yourself the proper amount of rest and rehabilitation. However, be aware of the fact that upon a first-time dislocation, one is more prone to successive dislocations of the initally affected joint. Unfortunately, the first time that the joint capsule is compromised renders it forever weakened. In other words, your shoulder may never be quite as strong as the form created by Mother Nature himself.

Do not despair however, Princess0823. I can assure you that with the proper strategy, your body can make an almost 100% recovery. I suggest that you take the necessary time to rest and eat with proper nutrition in mind. Protein will be crucial for the next several weeks. Vegetable, fruits, milk and other sources of vitamins and calcium should also not be ignored. Now, for the most important part. I cannot stress to you enough the importance of slowly rebuilding the strength in your upper extremity. Start with low weights and slowly increase with time. Time is the important factor...for time is a commodity precious to us all.

Take your time to lift weights and regain the tensile strength in your ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Calmly follow the plan set forth by your orthopaedic surgeon. Do not make the common error in assuming that your body has fully recovered physically just because you may be improved mentally.

The next 2 months will be a deciding time for you. You will have to make the tough decision of not riding in the warm weather (although feeling 80% better)...remind yourself that you will do much better in the long run if you take the extra time (and patience) to recover to 100%.

It is indeed unfortunate that I must write to you under these circumstances. I do wish it could have been different. But in the meantime, I hope you are feeling better and looking forward to rejoing your friends once fully recovered.

Godspeed and wishes for a rapid convalescence,
Mr Crowley

Good advise Crowley. You sound though you may be learned on the subject. Have you broken your clavicle also?
