Now Finished: Ask Me Anything with Trauma & Orthopaedic Doctor Henry Turner
I'm not a MD or surgeon, but I've had 2 knee surgeries and I would be very careful with that. Road biking has helped me immensely to recover from both, so if you have the urge to get on two wheels, that's the best option. Stay conservative man, lots of time in the riding season. When you start re-tearing ligaments and cartilage and having multiple surgeries, your quality of life will inadvertently decrease. Good luck.

@Gabtab: I posted in the AC question above (grd. 3 10 years ago), but it likely won't "look" less deformed. I was in that same predicament, but chose not to have surgery due to a variety of factors, mostly the risk involved. I've had a lot of luck with strength training and building some muscle around my shoulders and haven't had issues in the last 10 years. It still "shifts" in ways that a normal shoulder does not, but I haven't had any pain/issues with it whatsoever.

Complete AC separation 10 years ago on one, and torn rotator cuff 8 years ago on the other. No surgery. What has helped me tremendously is building muscle in my shoulders, as I feel that tends to "stabilize them", whatever that means. I also do lots of hanging exercises. In general, exercising my shoulders, be it stretching/weights/bands etc. has alleviated any issues I've had.
