    Dayum! That is separated pretty far. Not likely that would have connected again. I know what that's like. I had a 2 finger clavicle separation. One shoulder was dropped down nearly 2 inches. They lifted my shoulder up with one screw. I had it removed a couple of months later. I was left with a lump but just like lightening probably won't ever break in that spot ever again.

    You done a good job of messin' up! :eek:

    I get the sense from your posts that you will heal up just fine, and pretty quickly. Still - thoughts and prayers, mojo, karma, good vibrations, kismet - all that for your rapid healing and your ability to keep yourself off the bike long enough. You got this! :thumbsup:

    And I am completely insulted by the middle school comment. I prefer to think of myself as sophomoric! :sneaky:

    Take yer time and let it heal.

    You don't wanna end up with one of these:
    img_2958-jpg.30999.jpg

    After I broke it the 2nd time, it was flat as it healed. Then about 6 months to the day, I crashed on it again....same numbness as when I broke it, but no pain. However the bone popped up. Been like this since 2006. Not an issue, except I wear holes in my t-shirts there, and the seatbelt gets hung up on it.

    A buddy of mine had a clavicle break that basically never mended. It's a great party trick!

    My wife has a plate and six screws (she likes to tell everyone that fact) from a DH crash that broke her humerus. Like you, she still has tingles years afterwards.
    She also left the plate in as the surgery to remove it was non-trivial and she thought it might be fun to have metal detectors go off.

    The two of you must be related! ;)

    Oh dang, she really did a number! I may do the same as I don’t want to have surgery again..I’m a bear when injured.:mad:
    I’m assuming she’s able to ride like normal again!? I’m anxious to see my X-ray as I don’t know the size of the plate or how many screws I can brag about:laugh:
    Thanks for your input Paul, happy riding!!:thumbsup:

    It was a serious crash - the doctors in emergency said she had similar injuries to being hit by a car doing 50kmh. She replied that were about right - she was going about that fast!
