Tom, your injury was more involved than my wife's who had a single full-thickiness tear requiring the anchoring like you had. She's five months post op and still under orders to avoid placing any stress into the AC joint. She's been told she should be able to resume yoga movements involving the shoulder at the end of Oct. She's been able to swim using a kick board with her arms stretched out but no crawl or back stroke movement. Her doc has been very strict about PT activities but he's a team physician for one of the professional sports teams here and highly regarded for his outcomes. Sounds like you're both on the same recovery arc. Amazing when you think about what's involved in stretching that torn ligament into place, tacking it to the bone and establishing a patent connection capable of withstanding all the stress directed at that joint.
