Its slowly getting better, thanks. I'm going to physio once a week, he said my sockets were fine (checked my other arm) and I'm not really prone to dislocation, it was just a fall. So if I'm super careful for a while I may be OK, crossing fingers. Probably 6 weeks til I'm back in the water if everything goes well, surfing some mellow reefs where I can avoid duckdiving and having to paddle hard, I can catch waves one armed at my usual spot I know it that well now
I'm not rushing it though, I know this has the potential to be a long term problem if I fuck about..
I may be being paranoid and fearing the worst, but its my first real injury and shoulders are kind of essential to surf, at least being paranoid is motivating me do all my exercises properly. And statistics like 75% chance of doing it again for 20-something males are hardly great..
At least I can take my new boat out fishing around the islands where I live here (sheltered coast, water is 5 mins from my house) and get used to it before I venture into more exposed coastline. Look on the bright side?
So many things are hard without your right hand, I feel kind of useless haha, if I lived by myself I'd be struggling with so many basic tasks..
