Although this has to be one of the most common cycling injuries it still sucks (it hurts like heck and there is nothing you can do about it).bill said:
If both us would not end up in jail (and disbarred, too), I would send you the oxycodone pills that I hoarded after I broke my shoulder in 2003. (Don't get excited, I only have three of them.) As much as I hate the indoor trainer, it really preserved my sanity during the two months that I could not ride outdoors. My thoughts are with you.bill said:
I am both of these. He was hopeful that the break was close enough to the shoulder end of things to have enough ligaments holding things together to avoid surgery. Reevaluate in two weeks. But maybe a second opinion is in order, you might be right.
It's my left shoulder, and I'm right dominant, and I'm not a switch hitter or anything, but maybe you have a point.

Take it easy for a few weeks, keep the shoulders back and let it heal properly. At triathlons, you can always see someone who didn't by the drooping shoulder or that big lump where the bones fused at a horrible angle.
