I had my check up for my clavicle fracture yesterday and was given 6 more weeks for it to heal completely. If I'm really lucky it may be good in about 4 weeks, but I was told not to hold my breath. The Doc says that a clavicle typically takes about 9 weeks to heal, which puts it out to Aug 2nd for me. I guess the problem is that with a clavicle there is no way to completely immobilize it, and I can attest to that, it moves around quite a bite and can be very uncomfortable because of that movement. There is the option for a plate bolted up surgically, but because my break didn't really fit the need for surgery I'm sure my Insurance would have passed on the bill to me. So either way I would not be making a summer road trip, as it is the time just isn't there, and if I had had surgery I would probably have such a large medical bill that not only would I not be able to afford a road trip, I would probably only be able to eat stale bread and water for the next 5 years...
So for the rest of the summer I shall try to stay out of trouble and save my pennies for an even greater roadtrip in 2011.
See you on the road.
