Bummer. You definitely need a screw put in it. Do not leave that fragment floating that far displaced. Should be done fairly quickly too, calcification will start and can mess up your range of motion for life....
Wifey did that a couple years ago. Took a slam and apparently "fractured" an inch size piece and didn't realize it. Fast forward a couple months, middle of the night, she uses arm to push up out of bed and go to the bathroom. "Snap", piece totally breaks off. Crying, puking from the pain, brutal to watch her suffering. Long story short, removed the piece, drilled some holes (to stimulate recalcification), and she's back on a board.
Bummer. Had something similar on my ankle a couple of years ago. They had to go in with kind of a Dremel tool and sand off the chipped bone, drilled holes in my ankle under the theory that bone marrow will ooze out and create lubricating cartilage. Surgery failed (but doc still got paid), and I was still out for an entire season. Don't mess with it, get it fixed asap!
mid to late season and the usual rash of injuries start popping up.
Kevin137 I've heard popping shoulders back in is very painful, sorry to hear about this. Hopefully no surgery but like was mentioned the incisions to get screws is very small. Hopefully it won't come to that.
We've all been caught by unsuspecting features. I did this on a small side hit between some trees. Nothing like what happened to you, but still when you don't see it and it's to late, just sux !!
Speedy recovery my man and not to bring it up negatively...does this put you out for the rest of the season?
