Left clavicle broken. +

Broke my left clavicle while snowboarding yesterday. Surgery appointed for tomorrow. Fingers crossed that all goes well.

According to Wikipedia, surgery is rarely used in clavicle fractures, but there’s always a “but” and a “special case” when my ass is involved with something.

Clavicle (collar bone) is supposed to be a fast-healing bone (or so they say). The usual healing time for adults is 4-6 weeks, after which some physical therapy will probably take place (as my left hand might be weakned by the 4-6 weeks of immobilization).

If all goes well, I think I have an idea for my next tattoo :)

UPDATE (17:48):
Woke up around 14:20. Survived the surgery. Vaguely rembering going to the x-ray machine right after the surgery, which means they have x-rays of the metal plates they just installed. I need to get my hands on those and post them here.
