Surgery finally!

7am 4/19/12... First surgery ever. First broken bone(s) ever. Wish me luck! I'll be back around noon at the latest.

They decided to pin your clavicle? Or is this the ribs?

Was your C-bone break jagged or something? They just let mine heal naturally...

Good luck, bro!

Cleared to go back to work immediately with zero lifting left arm and super light duty right arm. That said I told the doc to write me a note for 10 days no work. Period. But yeah, I feel like an asshole not "pulling" my weight for the last 3 weeks and now it'll be another 6-8. Fuck it though, I didn't plan this! Again thanks for all the well wishes and believe me, I'm taking EASY! Like Sunday morning...

cripes, that picture looks like mine from back in the mid 80s. Just gave me a figure 8 brace and said "Well if it don't heal, you CAN live without it"

Healed up great, except for the very sensitive nob on the midpoint of the clavicle. A 5 year old could bring me to my knees with the right hit!

Kinda... he said don't lift anything but use your arm as regularly as possible. Just taking it slow.

Did they just kinda tuck it in like turning a tube sock inside out?

When I die I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did....not screaming in horror like the passengers in the backseat of his car.
