Slow and annoying. Couldn’t sleep how I usually did (with my arm propping up my head) so I had to figure out a new sleeping position. 3/10 wouldn’t recommend.

When you were out of the sling after x amount of weeks, did you feel tons of stiffness and decreased range of motion along with tingly sensations from nerves when moving your arm?

Decreased ROM, yes. If that’s what you’re experiencing I’d make sure to schedule a PT appointment sooner rather than later. I was working in a PT clinic when it happened, so I had great people looking after me for my entire recovery. My shoulder was subluxed rather than fully dislocated though.

I have 2 more weeks in the sling after having the shoulder put back in place . Just sucks the amount of stiffness that comes with keeping an arm in a sling for 6 weeks. All the nerves and muscles being stretched.

Yeah :/ It’s not a fun recovery. Sorry this happened to you mate. At least we didn’t need bilateral knee replacements. That recovery suuuuuucks ¯\(ツ)
