Clavicle FX, ? 2nd opinoin
I had a pretty good spill 2 weeks ago. Loss of conciouness x 3min. Many bumps and bruises. The worst being a fractured r clavicle. However the most significant pain I have is in my r scapula and humerous. Happened in Stowe Vt. ER Dr states clavicle was "smashed" and would need surgical repair.On monday, went to my primary for a referal to an orthopod. Appt with orthopod on wednesday. Re xray incl r scapula and humerous. Ortho sts no need for surgery, Scapula and humerous intact. Unable to wear a sling due to inrease pain. Suggest I just take it easy for 6-10 weeks with a follow up appt in 6 weeks.
2 days later I feel a shift and a pop. Repeat xrays w/o changes. Opinoin the same as far as treatment. I know that clavicle fractures are left to heal in many cases. Im just thinking I should prob get a second opinion. Any thoughts?
