It's been just over 6 weeks now since I shattered the head of my humerus bone; My surgery involved pinning everything back together.
I feel like I'm hitting a wall as far as physio goes.
My PT corrected my movements today; something that tends to happen with shoulder injuries I guess... Because of the stiffness in the joint, you tend to compensate your outward and upward arm movements by moving the whole shoulder upward instead of using your ball and socket joint.
It's getting me a bit down, because if I correct my movements my basic movement is absolutely pathetic; pain has surprising got worse which I don't understand (so my ortho surgeon scripted me 2 weeks of Codeine and Paracetamol) the pendulum movements are really painful now (wasn't the case when I first started them) seems to be a exagerated movement in the circle, especially clockwise (at the top of the stroke) which is where the pain hits...
Need to get in the physio pool more, because that did help me get my movements up...
Is this pretty much normal at this point? I have improved a lot... basic movement and usage of my arm again, but nothing major...
Surgeon ruled out me riding for at all for another 6 weeks, said it would be disastrous if I had another accident... This really sucks!
