  1. Hello to all the knowledgeable and helpful people who post here. I'm wondering if anyone has advice for my situation. I'm 56 y.o., 6ft, 220lbs., in decent shape. I was really excited about learning to ride an EUC. I did most of my falling on astroturf (like falling on a cloud), but a couple of falls on asphalt, too. At 3 weeks, I was to the point where I didn't fall anymore except for cause. Lots to learn, not ready for streets, not a speed demon, but not a scratch from EUCs. Then, riding my e-bike, due to dumb user error, I fell hard on a steep hill. Dislocated right (dominant) shoulder, with a glenoid (socket) fracture. I had arthro surgery on 10/03, and am in a shoulder immobilizer til 11/18 (6 weeks). At that point, surgeon says shoulder will be at 50%; 3 months = 80%; 6 months = good enough for "contact sports." I've broken bones in my life. This one has been the least painful, but really sucks because I was JUST getting started EUC riding. Super excited. Sense of accomplishment. Then BAM! Shut down. When I say "EUC" to the physical therapist, surgeon, most friends, and family, they hear "Death Trap." They say I should never ride again. So that's not super helpful. Has anyone had a similar injury and can give me advice on when I can start riding my EUC again? I want to start the day I get out of this immobilizer. Surgeon says 6 months (but his reference is football injuries, he doesn't know EUCs). I obviously can't think about this without bias. I don't want to re-injure and have to start the clock over. But I REALLY want to get back to it. I'm not a daredevil. I hadn't fallen on my EUC since the 10th day, and I never fell in a shoulder-injuring way. I just want to ride smooth paths, no bumps or speeding, just get time practicing. Any thoughts or advice of any sort would be very very much appreciated. I need the wisdom of experienced EUC riders--people who understand the addiction and the risks. Thanks in advance!
