The good news: 

I am pretty much okay now! The x-rays in the hospital showed nothing was broken and my arm was 'only' dislocated. Yes, my arm still hurts. Did I say it hurts dislocating your arm? Yes it does! Therefore I do need to see a physiotherapist to recover. But at least for the moment it doesn't seem necessary to undergo surgery. Ouch Phew!

The bad news: 

I won't be able to take any photos for the next six to eight weeks, so a large part of the photography season is over for me.

My beloved Fuji X-T1 and the 10-24mm f4.0 which was attached to the camera also fell into the water and had been underwater for about three to four minutes while people were trying to recover me first. Even though chances are slim that the people who helped me read this, I would really like to thank them for their quick response and help because without them things could have been much worse.
