Surgery Tomorrow

Today was my first MD appointment since the accident.  I expected “everything looks good and I will see you in 4 weeks”.  What I got was a scheduled surgery tomorrow.

Apparently the break is “significantly displaced and comminuted”.  This means that the 2 ends of the break are so far apart they won’t heal together and the break was so bad that there are floating fragments.  Without surgery the 2 ends won’t come together.  The surgeon also said the x-rays look worse than on Tuesday indicating the bones are even farther apart than a week ago.

This is both good news and bad news.  The bad news is another surgery for me.  The good news is that with surgery my recovery should be shorter and the clavicle will be much more stable.
