Fractured Clavicle Adult
I slipped and fell 4 days ago. Rather than crack opoen the back of my head, I turned to the right thinking my shoulder could take the impact vs. the ceramic tile floor.
I’m 33 year old male and have never broken a bone before (to my knowledge).
I fractured the outer 2/3 of my clavicle.
I have pain, but no swelling occured.
I can barely raise my arm straight up.
There is a small knot and it seems like the bone is shifted a bit.
How long will this take to heal?
Will I be able to return to my normal activities of weight lifting and playing pool?
I am medium build, 5’7″ and 177lbs.
I’ve read a lot of information that says to keep my arm close, but when I am laying flat it seems like the bones lineup better abd that slight knot is almost un-noticeable. Unfortunately I can’t afford to be flat on my back since I have two young sons to care.
