Default Broken Collar Bone

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?

I got one of these braces which has helped:

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.
