I had labrum surgery two years ago but rehab and everything wasn’t done how it should’ve been so it never healed properly. Blatantly disregarding that issue I tried to get my A-license recently. On my training tandem my shoulder had a partial dislocation but I adjusted and was fine for the rest of the jump. I’m getting surgery again soon but I’m curious if skydiving is a possibility with proper healing and good rehab? I’ve looked into braces etc but I was curious if anyone has had similar experience and continued jumping or have any tips/recommendations?
I recently dislocated my left shoulder on a training tandem. I’m going to get surgery to repair it asap. I’m curious as to if I’ll be able to jump after extensive rehab and training. I’ve done some research into braces as well. Does anyone know of others that recovered from such an injury and continued jumping? Any recommendations? Any advice would be great. I fell in love with the sport and am dying to jump again in the future when I’m healthy.
Hi all, I started my AAF course yesterday and this morning i called to postpone my remaining jumps to tomorrow. I am worried that i still don't have the feeling and power back in my left arm. At the first jump already, i felt numbness on my left thumb and index finger. Didnt think much about it as i thought it happened because of the cold air. Every jump it did, it got a bit worse but still not a big obstacle. At my 4th jump yesterday, after opening my parachute, i started to lose some feeling om my left arm. Is still grabbed my steering lines and landed safely. The moment i landed, i realized that my left arm is totally numb now. I had a hard time picking up the parachute using my left arm. It is the same feeling you have when you sleep on your arm and wake up on it. At the hangar when I grabbed my stuff and phone, I realized is lost coordination with my hand and fingers, making typing difficult. I dont want to skip any more days tbh to get my license. Today i called in that i wanted one day rest. What would your advise be about continuing tomorrow? As every jump made it a bit worse, i am worried that i will have total numbness in the air and have struggles steering, god forbid keep balance in the air. What my question is: Is it something common? I want to be responsible with this of course and personally I would go tomorrow and finish the course. Just to get an insight from more experienced people on here. My instructor didnt think much about it yesterday after i told him. After opening and landing, my vision was fine and i didnt feel dizzy or anything. Only numbness specifically on my left arm. Right arm is fine. I thought about the harness and the only place I do preffer it to be tight are my legs. Would loosing up the straps be more helpfull? Thanks.
