Separated shoulder

I haven't been bringing it up, but I have been training MMA again. My plan was to fight in Jan. However I just got a grade 3 shoulder separation. They said best case scenario is that it is a 4-6 recovery with no surgery, so it looks like everything going to be pushed back. Also I am going to run a marathon too, so my training for that will be pushed back as well...

I hurt it playing football. We play tackle football every Thanksgiving. (Turkeybowl) I run really hard so I always break tackles, so as people were bringing me down with a gang tackle all there weight was on my right shoulder driving down my left shoulder in the ground hard. I hard like a crack and pop sound and it hurt instantly. The next play I was blocking a 300+ lb guy and was using both arms and it got worse. The play after I just basically gave the guy a big shoulder block with my right shoulder, but that was it. The pain was more intense everytime I moved my arm and it was deformed and moving much like Sakuraba's shoulder in the second Silva fight...

Anyways just wanted to share with you guys as this Vicodin is kicking in.

That sucks, man.

I tweaked my shoulder about two year agos on a judo throw, and it took like 4 to 6 months for it to feel close to 100%. I think I kept reinjuring it before it was 100% so it never seemed to heal till I decided to just rest it for a couple months.

Shoulders are tricky, so makes sure it heals right so it's not a recurring problem.

Playing full tackle football is fun, but pretty dumb without pads. Rest up and I hope your recovery goes well.

No way. We used to play on Sundays for years like that. We used to record them and afterwards go back and rewatch them. It's been about 3 years since then though, but I love playing football. I do see what you are saying though. ALso I have gained about 60% of my motion already with my arm, but the pain is still pretty intense. If all goes well hopefully I will be back to training sooner than expected.
