Three weeks ago I fractured my left clavicle during a crash while playing bike polo. The pain wasn't too bad and I ignored it for the next two weeks before getting in to see the doctor. I got x-rays and it appears to be a distel third fracture and a clean break at that. (some scanned images can be seen here: http://kmaxtrax.blogspot.com/2007/06...his-sucks.html) Since it's already been three weeks I'm guessing it has already started healing and I'm assuming that any kind of treatment I have to get done will involve re-breaking the bone and then resetting with possible surgery and pin/plate application to hold it in place.
Does anyone have any experience with something like this? Any suggestions or advce to offer regarding what kind of routes I could take or options I have? I'm meeting with an Orthopedic surgeon on Friday but I'd like to go in with as much knowledge on this as possible so I can make a quick decision about where to go with this.
