    If you haven't checked it out already, this thread (here) has lots of great info/details of others' experiences with separations.

    I had a grade 3 exactly 6 weeks ago. The medical advice I received was to get out of the sling straight away (only wore it 1 day) and get plenty of physio.

    I'm now back in the pool swimming freestyle and back on the dirt too (but now a bit of scaredy cat - need to work on the mind games).

    Good luck with healing up.
