Default An appropriate Username...again :(

Bought some new plastic at GGGT today and was doing some fieldwork.
Foot slipped on my plant, arms windmilled a little, and I threw my Comet four feet to my right. The attached photo shows what my shoulder looked like for three hours tonight when I couldn't reduce it myself, and then Urgent care couldn't reduce it. Ambulance ride to the ER and finally got it back into the socket.
Crap.

It is painful. It's my seventh anterior dislocation of that shoulder, so I'm more prone to it. If I get my hand up higher than shoulder level, any force at the wrong angle and it dislocates. In this case my foot slipped out, and I tried aborting the throw, but my arm went up and windmilled and it slid out of the joint. The tendons and ligaments are all sloppy and the muscles weak, so they don't hold anything in place very well anymore.

I read your post in the other "username" thread, so I know about your many past shoulder injuries. Man, I feel bad for you. My worst fear is that i might injure my shoulder/elbow/knee and be unable to play. At my age (58) we don't recover as quickly, and i'm not sure what I would do if I couldn't play. I'd have to find something I probably wouldn't enjoy as much. I hope you recover as quickly as possible.

I have the same issues, that is why I effectively phased out the anny flex shot from my game.
