Scar update - a quick comparison from the day I got my stitches out to this morning. The scar is bigger than I had expected, or hoped, and recovery is much slower than I had anticipated. When I was told that it would take 6-9 months to get back to normal I decided that I would be done at the 6 month mark... Well it's 5 1/2 months and I still have a long way to go. I am delighted to have my collarbone back to its normal location, and to have the major tightness gone from my chest. I am also delighted to be back deadlifting. The joint is doing well under tension from the floor, less so from overhead though so it will be a while yet before I can hang from a pull up bar. Joint compression is still an issue, with limited ability to do push ups, burpees and planks, and this week was my first attempt to put a barbell overhead (small sets of push presses at 15kg). External rotation is still poor despite daily rehab exercises but it is slowly coming along. A huge shout out and thanks to Maurice at @crossfitmpt who has gotten me this far, and will continue to push me until I reach full recovery.
