No no Candie, he's just going to have you start moving it around. As a matter of fact the day you have your surgery you'll probably be able to move it pretty easily. But then the next few days afterward are going to get tough. Make sure you take your pain meds as prescribed. You'll be okay just not very comfortable for a few days. But then you aren't very comfortable now.

I couldn't imagine moving it now! I know he will push me to move it and make it stronger! That is what I want and why I went to him! It was funny one of his nurses said she was gonna set my surgery up for Monday! He told her no way that was to long for me to have to suffer with my arm like this! He just told her it had to be tomorrow! Make it happen! I knew right then and there I was in good hands!

Yeah the biggest problem with waiting is that you are keeping it in a protected position and the longer it stays there the harder it's going to be to get it moving again. Once the clavicle is fixed the worse thing you can do is to keep protecting it. That's how people end up with frozen shoulders.

That is what happened to me. First my doc told me start moving it and then he said 'Calcification didn't improve. We started to soon, put it back in a sling and hold it still for another 4 weeks' and I ended up with a frozen shoulder! Took lots of PT and pills fixing it.

I heard good things about Dr. Sanders and will go to him next time, should it happen again.

I am glad you have surgery, Candie! You don't have to deal with all the other mess.

I'll be at CYFAIR today as well. Have a good surgery and heal up quick!

Just got home about 9 tonight! Had a looooong day hanging out at the hospital all day. Candie's surgery went well, but she's in a good bit of pain right now so I've got her drugged up and sleepin! Thought she would be getting a plate and some screws, but because of where the bone was broken Doc Sanders ended up drilling a couple of holes and stitching the bones together! Didn't even know they could do that. She has an appointment tomorrow afternoon to start the physical therapy.....that should be a lot of fun!

You know that is actually really good. Now there won't be metal plate getting in her way when she tries to reach across her body with her arm. It's going to be less stable in the beginning though, and may even her therapy and range of motion to begin with. But she'll end up doing very well.

When I broke mine I let it heal the natural way and it took about 6-7 weeks for it to fuse on it's own. I do have "the bump" and it will be grinded down in 2 months so I will have my own little scar. All this talk about plates and "feeling" it makes me glad I didn't choose to have the plate. Even though it is slower to heal naturally I'm glad I chose this route. You hear mixed opinions on natural vs plate. I realize that some fractures there are no choices also some people want the fastest road back to recovery. Do all clavical breaks require physical therapy or just the ones that had the plate. Reason I ask is that I broke my clavical 9 weeks ago and I have full range of motion with no discomfort as of this point and my doctor didn't mention any physical therapy for my injury. Matter of fact, I even played 54 holes of golf Friday shooting in the mid-70's as usual (I'm glad it didn't effect my game).

I already have full range of motion! It hurt like but I did it! Doc Sanders said that all clavical breaks do not require surgery! He said most will heal fine on thier own! He usually only does surgery on athletes that want to get back active in thier sport sooner. He said mine would has required surgery due to the location and the gap between the bones! That and that my bone was about to protrude out of my skin!
