Is yours a collar bone fracture too?
nah mine was low bone density all over. If I had a serious accident a few years ago, I would indeed be a metal man
Looks exactly like mine! Sportsmed? The Dr said to me that it can stay in there if it wasnt irritating, you can see and feel the plate, and when i move my arm the collarbone juts out a whole lot more than the other side.
One bit of advice i was given is Juice - Apple, carrot, beetroot and Ginger, tastes pretty good.
Take care, oh and get a trainer if you dont have one, i was given a loaner while recovering and it really helped.
According to what I have learnt, collarbone breaks are the most common fracture for cyclists :-(
I was told the plate will show up on me too when the swelling goes down because of being lean, there is no padding to hide it.
Thanks for the good advice - had a nice celery, apple and beetroot juice this afternoon :-) Must borrow a trainer.
How long ago did you do yours and does it feel back to normal now?
Katrina, good for bones but add another. New knowledge to include Vitamin K when battling oesteo.
The human body is amazing.
Stop it! I've been crying since 11.30 Sunday night :(
What's the point in watching Paris-Roubaix now?
No I am Spartacus!
Mark has lifted and is riding in Paris-Roubaix now! Magnifique!
Katrina, on your x-ray, quite an obvious gap in the collar bone. With your shoulder, can I see 3 pieces of bone?
With my x-rays of my shoulder, I could see 3 pieces of bone but compacted so helped with healing.
I explained to you why I went to Sportsmed. My health insurance does not cover that gap and covers just under half of physio bills, until I reached a $300 physio limit. Limit quickly reached when seeing physio twice a week, then once a week.
After your experience of being in agony for 3 days while waiting for surgery, and the look of your x-rays, I think the next time I will still go to Sportsmed. Even though it is a chunk out of my disability pension. 4.5 months on I have background pain and real pain doing physio. Still working on regaining full movement, fingers crossed.
