    im getting another CT scan on monday but they told me i fractured something. I forget which bone. he said it was very common in bicycle accident because the first thing to hit the ground is the shoulder. He also said it very common in motorcycle accident but there are usually so many other problems, they never even notice.

    :lol3

    So then he asked me about the pain level and I told him "oh its not bad, I rode my BMW to work today"

    :D

    the reaction was classic, "you WHAT?"

    Nice reaction - heal up soon.

    I'm still hobbling around on my bum foot. Not even thinking (ok - an occasional thought because I forget) about riding the bike yet.

    I sent a message to a guy once talking about clavicle fractures. Let me see if I can find it.

    Here we go. Remember this is all IMHO, I have background in the stuff but nothing worth any merit. The OP wanted to know why I never wore the clavicle protectors that came with the Koerta.

    Fractured Scapula.

    Doc said 6 - 12 weeks before back to 100%. He also is referring me to a specialist just to be safe. At this time he is not recommending surgery, but he wants another opinion.

    Good news so far!
