My Fractured Clavicle Timeline (With X-Rays)

Haven't seen anything like this done before so I figured I'd show mine.

Sunday, June 27th - Crash I don't crash, I just run out of talent. :smirk:

No x-rays as the ER/hospital was a complete joke. Don't EVER go to the hospital in Sturgis, MI, especially if your life depends on it (story for another day). I wouldn't have gone there but I wasn't really thinking straight between the concussion and all the morphine. :P

Here's a picture I had a nurse take though. :smirk:



Monday, June 28th - Saw the specialist at OSMC (Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center) Would highly recommend :thumb:

Findings: Comminuted left midshaft clavicle fracture with 2-3 cms of shortening and 2 cm of proximal fragment superior displacement.

Surgery was highly recommended. :banana:

Surgery Type: ORIF (Open Reduction and Internal Fixation) LEFT Clavicle Fracture with Allograft Bone Grafting.





And then we had 8 days of hell...um I mean sunshine & lollipops...until surgery. :lol: What really ticked me off though was that I missed the July 4th weekend at Red Bud.:banghead:

Tuesday, July 6th - Surgery :banana:

July 22nd - 17 days post-op - First x-rays





August 23rd - 7 weeks post-op





September 10th - 10 weeks post-op





October 4th - 13 weeks post-op





November 1st - 17 weeks post-op - The day I can start riding, to bad there will probably be snow on the ground by then. ugh

Oh and here's another picture (my sister-inlaw (she's a nurse) wouldn't stop looking at it).:lol: :smirk: For the 2 weeks I laid around and just watched TV it could only be news/boring stuff. I tired to watch some Jeff Dunham, but only made it to about 90 seconds before the Oxycodone had no more affect on the pain. :cry: :lol:




I'll end this on a serious note, if you don't wear a neck brace, go and buy yourself one right now. I owe my Leatt everything. :hail: Sure it shattered my clavicle, but choosing between a broken clavicle or neck/spine/being paralyzed isn't that hard of a decision IMO.:thumb:
 
November 1st will be here before you know it. There will be plenty of riding in the dez on TDay.
 
Wow, Your hardware matches mine. Yours looks more like some kind of alien implant creature or something sci-fi. Hope your riding soon. My goal is also Nov 1st which will be 13 weeks post op for me. I am going to do a nice easy Dual Sport ride to the Lost Coast and back home. I'll make it an over nighter.:thumb:

:lol: Yeah, I can spend hours trying to feel all the screw heads. To bad it's still numb...wait...holy :bleep: it hurts when I pinch really hard. :banana::banana::banana::banana: Oh yeah it feels like it's on fire. :banana::banana::banana: My nerves are FINALLY reaching the skin. Damn now I can't stop pinching it :smirk: This is like a "live" post, I pinch then type a little, pinch, type. :lol:

WTH was I saying :noidea: :bonk:

We don't have trails around my place and I don't really want to ride a snow covered track. :smirk:

If I remember right I was able to ride until the about Nov. 20th last year. :thumb:
 
That is a great shirt James! :thumb:

I was lucky enough to ride my trail systems until about Dec 10th last year. I don't think that is going to happen this season.

You live in NorCal right? So you do get a decent amount of snow fall?
Quick question James - does that hardware ever come out or is it there for good now? Also, great shirt! :thumb:
It's supposed to stay in, unless I start having issues then it'll have to be removed. :pout:

I also had a pin in my left elbow when I was younger, but it started causing problems so they had to remove it. :bonk:
