Is the OS trip still in jeopardy ip?
With a tour coming up I'd be tempted to ditch the sling and gently start getting back some mobility in the shoulder.
Well the ortho said 6 weeks in the sling, also I can take it off and do gentle exercise (no weight), but if there's any pain put the sling back on. At the moment for this past week I have been taking the sling off at times, but after a while I get increasing pain in the collarbone, so I'm still using the sling. I expect I'll be able to use it progressively less in the next two weeks.
OS tour is still a going ahead. I think there's enough time to get the shoulder mobility back - there is still more than five weeks until we depart. Even if I'm not in tip-top fitness I'll get fit in the first week or so and my wife may be able to out-pace me for a little while
