just got bucked up and have a broken clavicle

Well, that was a heck of a fall! Alto decided to throw a monster crow hop at me and I went flying over his shoulder and snapped my clavicle in half. So i'm sitting at the hospital now, waiting for more xrays to see if my shoulder is dislocated or if its just my clavicle, i'm trying to get copies of my xray, the bone literally in two pieces. I get to go home tonight and then tomorrow I have to get an appointment for surgery. I am so glad that I was wearing my helmet! Stay safe everyone and enjoy your horses, because i'm banned from mine for at least a month!

Oh good, for a moment I was about to ask you why you were on a forum instead of getting medical help. Whew. That's a relief.

My mother fractured her collar bone once from falling down the stairs at our old beach house. Not a very pleasant time, I can tell you that. I hope it's not too horrible of a break and that you heal up well.

Ahaha yeah that would be a little stupid... Yeah i'm just chilling in a hospital bed with some pain meds. I'm just mad I need surgery, because that lengthens the recovery time. Sigh. Horses.

Wow, you can tell i'm on painkillers by the title, that's supposed to be bucked off! Thanks guys, do far i'm surviving.

Heavy meds do that to me too. You're not alone XD

In fact, the only two pain killers that do anything at all for me are Vicodin and Morphine. Vicodin will barely take the edge off and sometimes make me sick. Morphine...whoooooo can we say over the moon? (apparently I think the color blue is hilarious when I'm on a Morphine-high at the hospital)

I'm curious because I've never broken anything...is there a lot of pain when you first hit the ground or does it come later?

I hope you heal quickly and properly! It sucks that you have to have surgery and have to not ride for a month!

When I sprained my ankle I couldn't ride for like two months. And that's because my Dad and I decided that I could ride again before my therapy person said it was okay lol.

I'm sending healing vibes your way. Hope it's not too serious :).

Ouch! One of my rugby team mates once broke her clavicle during practice :/ it looked sooo painful. Here's to you healing without too many issues

You're on Horse Forum from an ER bed? Excellent. Glad you're not permenantly broken. A month goes by quickly. Hopefully your doctor is at least a cutie.
