*UPDATE* The surgery never took....

A few months after surgery, I noticed that the bone was back in the place prior to surgery. So I scheduled an appointment with the surgen to find out why the bone moved....He told me the band slipped off the bone.

I decided to seek a 2nd opinion, so I went to another orthopedic surgen...after he read the medical report and looked at the xrays from the previous surgen, he came up with this conclusion.......They used a combination of orthoband and cadaver to tie the clavix down. Well, the notched the clavix bone....the orthoband has since fractured the bone and is moving thru the bone like a knife in butter. They said it was a 50% chance that it is done healing and it should be fine, but they dont know until they opened it back up.


If I were to do it all over again, I would not of chosen the surgery route.
