So, I was lucky enough to crash on my shoulder over the weekend and receive a grade III shoulder separation. It boils down to tears in the AC and CC ligaments which allowed the clavicle to raise about 3/4 of an inch out of the joint. Orthopedic surgeon says I could go either way on this one. It should heal up fine if not repaired surgically, but could have discomfort and range of motion issues that could be worked on later. Does anyone here have experience with this injury (with or without surgery) as it relates to swimming post recovery. It seems that all of my researching leads me a 50/50 split on how people have dealt with it vs how they recovered.
Here is a picture since I know it really did not happen without a picture.
