I fractured my head of humerus 8 weeks ago, discharged from ortho clinic 2 weeks ago, breaks healing without comlplication, started physio yesterday. Was running regularly, training for a half, until mid feb, when i developed piriformis syndrome, had to stop running for a while, did more gym work, then broke shoulder.
Going a bit crazy (and putting on weight) from lack of exercise and drinking too much booze
Considering getting out running again, got quite limited movement in my shoulder.

Has anyone had experience of this type of injury and can advise me how long it was until you started running and if you encountered any major problems/issues when you got back runnng?
