I’m 43 yrs old and made a comeback to skating earlier this year. Things were going great until I hung up ollieing up a ledge. I fell forward onto my hands and fractured my 4th metacarpal (a small hand bone). After 4 weeks and still with my cast on I couldn’t resist a skate. Again all was going good until my trucks slipped off the coping whilst grinding in the bowl. In an effort to protect my broken hand I crashed down on my shoulder and dislocated it. I somehow managed to get out of the bowl and drive myself to A&E!
I have 2 days to go in my cast but the shoulder is going to take long to heal. I’m feeling so bummed out.
