Broken Collar Bone
 
1 Attachment(s)
Damn! bombing the run, then a guy came into my lane at the last minute with no where to go.... Resulted in broken collar bone and torn ligaments. I go tomorrow and meet with an Orthopedic Surgeon and find out what my options are.

Oh yeah...I had a Tahoe trip planned for the end of February.

I have an appointment tomorrow with the surgeon....I'm 99% sure surgery is needed, but I will know more tomorrow.

Did you have surgery?

no surgery required, but yeah, trying to get over the "bump" i'll have the rest of my life...

Colarbone has been my most painful injury yet. I've broken alot of bones but when it was rubbing together on the bumpy ride to the hospital ..... man That hurt.

I thought all along it was a broken collar bone, but its just a grade 3 ac separation. I chose the surgery route....I go in Tuesday to have it put back in place and start the healing process.

Good luck. What is the recoup time for that surgery?
