13th June Unlucky for me !!

Monday 13 June

Monday 13th June
This x-ray is my right shoulder after I took a tumble on the Seaford to Newhaven cycle path this morning. Just in case you are wondering the bone at the top middle is supposed to be connected to the bit just above the ball and socket of my shoulder.
   I thought I would write a blog about the injury and the recovery process to ,perhaps, help others who give themselves a similar injury
After falling off, my right shoulder was extremely painful and I hopped around in circles for a bit swearing and holding my shoulder. thinking it a dislocation I declined an ambulance and I proceeded to walk, arm Napoleon style in my jacket, with my bike towards Newhaven where my wife was working. I intended to get her to take me and my bike home and then onto hospital. However, my brain was a little wobbly after the shock and adrenalin and it wasn’t until I was crossing the river into Newhaven that I remembered that she works in Brighton on Mondays and I was definitely not going to walk there!!

Luckily my mate Mike Shorer lives in Newhaven and he was able to put down the piece he was making and give me a lift to hospital (and he is still babysitting my bike). Thanks Mike, you are an Angel !!

I am not going to mention that I asked Mike to drop me off at Lewes minor injuries unit thinking that I wouldn’t have to wait very long to be seen and that my wife would be finished and going home past Lewes in an hour or so. Nor am I going to report that I was seen very quickly to be told that they didn’t have the skills to help and that I needed to go to A&E.

So I was in A&E in Eastbourne for 3 hours whilst they prodded and x-rayed me and sent me home with a sling and an appointment for the orthopaedic clinic on Wednesday.

When I don’t move my arm it just has a serious ache but it is very sore when I move it and there is a strange and unpleasant jamming/clunking sensation at times.

this blog is 3 days behind at the moment but typing left handed is very slow.
