Ummm... This sucks...

Alright so my recent fears are now officially confirmed. I've had a broken clavical for the last two or so weeks now. Not really cool with that.


Here you can see the clean break a little bit there.


Here is the same shot altered so it stands out a little more.


Another look at it.


And altered.


The bigger picture.

So this is my first broken bone, and thinking about it I think I was joking the night this happened about how I hadn't bled during the games which was a first for me. Now I've got to firgure out how to deal with this. It looks to me like a clean break and not just a fracture so I don't know what the deal with leaving it alone would be.

I really don't want to/can't start taking a lot of time off riding and running right now. I've got
two big (for me) races in the Quicksilver race and the Reston Town Center Grand Prix. Plus a month and a half away I've got my triathlon. This is pretty piss poor timing. I guess I'll have to wait until I talk to the doctor again before I figure out where to go with this. Glad I didn't go back and play polo last night.

Ouch. That SUCKS. What terrible timing we have (I just broke my arm... just in time for summer =(

Trust me tho, take care of it. Sit a few out if you have to. You won't regret it in the long run.

Pun intended.

Clavicle is tricky; I think you just have to rest. Please take care!

I've only broken one bone: my middle toe. Ouch.

Wow. You are one tough guy. My broken clavicle was the most painful broken bone ever.

Sounds like all you can do is take it easy. Best wishes.

uh.....you're not doing a Tri in 2 months dude. That's a clean break alright and it's not something that's gonna heal that fast.

Honeykbee broke her elbow about a month ago. Clean break too. 6 weeks they said. We'll see. Clavicle? OUCH!!! Please don't move it around too much and fuck it up worse, get some pieces broken off and then you'll have problems forever.

again, good luck. Pulling for you (pardon the pun)

and like jamy, just broke my big toe last weekend (all the way down). nothing compared to your sitch. Just means i can't run.

Sorry again and thanks for adding me.
