2007- Jan 2, hand a pretty nasty fall from a cob, who jumped me and kicked my shoulder from behind. This resulted in a dislocated shoulder, AC joint and fractured humerus.
1 operation and 3 metal rods later, 8 months no riding. Then after 8 months, rods are removed.
Over the last 5 years I've had on/off issues with it. Maybe once a month- 6 weeks I tweak it by accident and its tender for a couple of days.
Two weeks ago, walking my dog, he pulled. I've been in a lot of pain since, my neck, shoulder and back area.
I went to the physio yesterday.
Messed up is an understatement. The muscles have attached wrong, and the sack of fluid that should be between my AC joint and a muscle to stop it banging is 90% gone, hence why I can only lift my arm so high and then it won't budge. The swelling needs to go down, MRI scan, and possible operation.
But this is really effecting my riding now. I can barely ride on the left hand side as I concave my upper body and make her go outside and I am literally being thrown in to the wall the whole time, and barn figures are useless.
Any ideas? Another rider isn't an option, and if I don't sell her... do I wait and hold off the op till its warmer and they're out 12hrs a day so she's getting out, or just go for it and work with her and however she is when I'm sorted?
A miserable Duffy :(
