Fractured Clavicle Questions
I broke my collarbone 4 weeks ago and so far healing seems to be going well. However, today I started having some acute pain sometimes dull, but never constant. Is this common? Second I was curious is it common even after a clavicle heals that part of it will remain unseen? My ER doctor never explained the location of the break nor showed me my xray. Just to see an orthopedic surgeon so I made an appointment but the only opening was for Aug 24 which will be over 5 weeks after the fracture. I am extremely adament to get results so I can continue progress. My main concern is that I'm enlisting in the Army and its causing anxiety wondering if I will still be eligible for service. Any help would be greatly appreciated & put me at ease. FYI since my doctor never explained where the fracture is locate. I believe it to be either a Type I or Type IIB fracture, but not separated. Heavily cracked is my opinion, but I am not a doctor. So I have to play the guessing game at the moment.

How did it turn out? Did fully heal?
