Hey last sunday I was in the park and they had a flat box then a gap into a down which was pretty steep and i tried a switch up onto the down box the box was pretty thin and i got my skis caught up like i always do and slammed my shoulder right into the box. I thought i just bruised it but then that wednesday i played in a hockey game and i knew it was hurt. the doctor said i had a minor fracture in my left collar bone and i can not play contact sports for 3 weeks. i forgot to ask him when i could ski. i feel n o pain in it and it just looks like it is swelling a bit. it was just one little crack on th x ray. i dont wana be an idiot and fuck it up more but my appointment for him to give me the ok is march 4th. i have a comp the 1st. do u guys think il be ok to ski then? and should i take it easy for the rest of the season? i hope not
Last season i snapped mine in half and displaced it 3 inches out, it took 3 month to fully heal and it still hurts but in your case i would take it super easy for the 3 weeks and see how it goes from there. But make sure you dont fall
i skied 2 weeks after i snapped mine... broke it again, then i skied 3 weeks after that... fractured it again, then i waited a long time cuase the season ended and i skied in the summer and fractured it again becuase i missed the landing of a table
it hurt but it wasnt really that bad. you only fractured it so youll be fine in 2 or 3 weeks
oh yes, ive got hair. plenty of it. in fact, because i have such long hair sometimes when im in the shower lathered tips of my hair go into my eye and it stings like the dickens but i dont cry because im hardcore. -7X
Take it easy as in groomers, no park.
I also get to go back march 4th for my broken shoulder...
me: "you should just say you're 17"
mikey:: "But wouldn't she know when she like (mutters off) downstairs"
me: "You have a small penis, don't you"
miley: "well not very small, but..."
you should be fine, i was just ridin the alps last week, hit a kicker off piste then got cut up by a fuckin ski school skier (not hatin on you skiers).caught an edge and fucked the ac joint in my shoulder. still rode all week just alot of pain killers.
best bet, bring a camera with you for the next few weekend. i didnt ski hard for like a month and a half, then after getting back into the groove i re broke mine. so def take it easy and give it some time
I broke mine in 2 places and had to have surgery on it so i wouldn't forever kill my shoulder. I'm out for at least three months, with one month down. but for just a crack you're good to go in a couple weeks, whenever he said contact sports, conceivably, skiing is a contact sport, your contact is just with ice and boxes and shit. So you should be good ina couple weeks, shit hurts though, I could feel mine moving inside my shoulder which was seriously whacked out.
