Two months ago I had a bad getoff resulting in a third degree concussion and fifth degree shoulder separation. Two days afterward I had surgery to repair the shoulder. The surgeon used the shave the bones & reattach procedure. Three weeks after that I started therapy and noticed a bump developing. Doctor and therapists said "it's nothing, don't worry," but it just kept getting worse. A couple of weeks after finishing therapy, the clavicle was elevated and protruding at the AC joint and painful. Apparently, I have a third degree separation currently and most likely will need another operation to repair it again. My question is: has anyone had the operation and what was the outcome? Also, has anyone heard of a failure like this happening? Regardless, it looks like I won't be riding at all anymore this year. Thanks for any input.
