Broken Clavicle

Well I know most of you know I went down at MSRH on the 2nd. I ended up bracking my collar bone. Just got back from the orthopaedic doctor and he said I had 2 choices. Let it grow back or have a plate and some screws inserted which would have better results. He said because the bones are over lapping, I would not get my full motion back and that side will never be as strong as it was. Anyways here's a the xray. And I did see Dr Mark Sanders. What do you guys think??

OUCHIE! I think you next to us in the paddock. I came through the Carousel right after you went down. Glad it wasn't any worse.

I would suggest the plates and screws. Bones have a tendency to heal themselves however it would seem odd for it to be overlapping.

Welcome to the club!
I opted for the plate and screws myself.
I couldn't wait for it to heal by itself before I rode.

I think that looks cool....and you need the plate and screws...

It will heal faster an be more usable, I broke my leg a few years ago and the doc gave me the same option and just basically said if you want full use again you need the plate and screws...

Get the surgery. And then use the x-ray of the plate and screws as your new avatar!! lol

But seriously, always get a 2nd opinion on any surgery...

Was out of town and wanted to have it looked at by an orthopaedic doctor not just the ER doctor.

Iceman that really sucks! Sorry to hear it happened.

Listen up; You've got to get it plated. I've been working with peoples bodies for a long time and I can tell you first hand that not only will it take it longer to heal up but even after it heals, if it does actually rejoin (many don't) it is not going function the way it is suppose to and when you get older you are going to have problems with that shoulder unless you just aren't active. So if you plan to be a couch potato like most doctors see then don't worry about it. If you plan to stay active then get it fixed.

At least he gave you a choice! I didn't get a choice! I saw in Weds afternoon and had surgery Thurs morning!

I say get the plate! You will have full range of motion right after the surgery! Really he will make you lift it over your head before you leave the hospital! (well that is what I have heard!! I was allowed to do that with mine!)

Doc. Mark is a trip! I have very glad I went with him! Granted my recovery hasn't been very speedy but at least eventually I will get full use of my right arm again!

Sorry man this is BS and bad advise to be giving people. I do therapy on people on a regular basis who have clavicles pinned and I'm one of them myself. There are many people with no pain at all and full range of motion. I have had some who didn't have full range of motion because of the location of the plate and if they choose to they can get it removed after healing and then achieve full ROM. They don't need this kind of advise.

Or do you mean it's going to hurt initially, post surgery but then get better and stop hurting after full recovery?
