When I was 16 I took a long fall and landed on my head. Besides a traumatic brain injury, I had separated my shoulder from the clavicle. When my mom took me in to see a surgeon, he told her that I did not need surgery because I was a girl and didn’t play football and that with therapy I would get most of my mobility back.
Unfortunately mom believed him and opted out of it. It’s a decision I deeply regret. I had about 80% mobility and have a 10lb weight restriction.
