Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Dear all,

    I am an applicant for the para's/officer,

    though recently have seperated my AC joint(shoulder) at judo practice.
    I have an immediate operation soon, to correct and normal function is expected 12 weeks after surgery.

    Im correctly informed that after 12 weeks I can return to contact sports (judo,rock climbing etc). pro rugby players,ice hockey players and mma fighters have had this exact problem/procedure and have returned to elite levels, so there is no question of my full function returning (with proper rehab etc).

    though I will have a single stainless steel screw in my collar bone to encourage tendon/ligament growth, will this bar me for entry alone even if I am superfit and superfunctional???
  2. Oi, moonhead, stop posting this all over the place and read the reply to your first thread.
