Slo-mo jogging in the learner pool with the kids and speshul needs dribblers sounds awesome cool. I might injure my shoulder just so I have an excuse.

You need an excuse?
Running hurt my shoulder immensely so it looks like that's out too :(

You can try squats with a backpack with some weights in it, and there are heaps of leg excercises you can do without aggrevating your shoulder, like hamstring curls. I am recovering from a shoulder reconstruction and i have been doing weight training on my legs and cardio work on a stationary bike - you can get a really mean sweat going even wearing a sling.
I do either just straight out 1 hour rides at medium intensity, or about 40 minutes of interval training of varying intensities. A good interval training session on the bike is hard to beat.
And plus you can focus on your abs while you are injured - no hanging leg raises or anything, but i have been doing weighted decline situps, russian twists, leg raises with a medicine ball while lying down and so on..
Of course each shoulder injury can be very different as you know, so i dont know whether this has been a help or not.

If it was caused by impact, there's a good chance that you have a dislocation at the AC joint. Follow your collarbone along to the bump near the shoulder. Now compare that to the non-injured side. If it's significantly higher, that's a pretty good indicator.
By the sounds of things, you have another high percentage injury, which is a rotator cuff tear -- probably partial (pray to whatever heathen god you believe in). That means, among many other things, that swimming is out. Overhead reaching in general is just going to **** you up further, but you should realize that right away, since swimming will probably hurt like a sonofabitch.
Just take it easy until you get checked out.

The injured side is some what higher than my good side. That was one of the first things I noticed. I've got my letter of referral from the doc so should be making my appointment today. Am going to try swimming but will have to lay off my preffered stroke (front crawl) for a while I think.

Looka here: If it is indeed a dislocation, then shoulder instability is often a permanent condition that follows. If you want to minimize the chances for that, then you should also be minimizing physical activity until things are put back in place.
Stretching ligaments and/or the shoulder labrum in this state are bad. For ****'s sake, read a book or something.

Thanks for the advice, I didn't realise the long term consequenses could be that bad. Looks like I'll have a hell of a lot more playstation time then.

Honestly, chill-out time is the best medicine right now.

What RM said: super common Judo injury. That injury is the exact reason guys cite for why their shoulders are still messed up. Baby it man, you have your whole life ahead of you.
As I get older I regret playing through or working through injuries all those times in the past (mine are mostly work related).
If you can actually feel or see the difference in your clavicle, don't do **** until you see a good sports doc. I had a minor one of those about a month ago and my doc could tell by palpating it and strength testing it would be ok, he was right and I was at 100% a couple of weeks later.
