About three years ago, my shoulder started dislocating when using it. I always wanted to get the surgery, but was scared. At the end of last year, I decided to get it, but I broke my leg and had a rod with 4 screws put in. After getting all healed up with my leg I was even more worried and i didn't want to stop surfing for a few months like they said. But it was vary dangerous because when i was out surfing my shoulder would dislocate and leave me defenseless. So 2 months ago, I manned up and got it. It wasn't half as bad as I thought I was gonna be and little did I know I was surfing in 2 months.
