Did you steal my x-ray? I broke my collarbone just like that two months ago. My doctor thinks i'm retarded for biking this soon after surgery. Is he right?

Was it fixed? i let my riders back to sport fast, understanding that any fall puts you at risk

I got a plate with six screws put in. Last time i was there the doctor told me i could stop wearing my sling (i hadn't worn it for over a week anyway) and i could use my left arm for anything under five pounds (i had already picked up my 26 pound bike with only my left hand). I started riding again that week too.

I recently fell directly on my wrist and took some blunt trauma. I think I injured some of those small carpal bones right near the ulna. (and possibly some ligaments) bones My question is, how easy is it to break or tear something in that area? I'd imagine it wouldn't take much, but I didn't hit the ground very hard; it was mainly the odd angle that it hit. It's been a month and I've not gotten it checked out. Been braced throughout, I still have full articulation in my wist, but there's still some pain. Especially with putting weight on it.

Worst part is, i thought it was nothing when it happened(skateboarding) and I went riding after. Rode through the pain...I'm regretting acting like a badass now.. probably made it worse. fml

I recently got worked hitting dirt jumps. I fell very very hard on Sunday directly on my shoulder. I have been in pain ever since it happened. I went from about 4.5 feet in the air, straight to my shoulder. I can move my arm fine but there is pain. I don't think I broke my shoulder but maybe I tore or pulled a muscle in there. I am in a lot of pain when I try to lift something with my left arm. There's nothing bruised or anything on my shoulder but the pain is really annoying. I don't think my shoulder is broken though because I didn't cry when it happened and moving my shoulder doesn't cause that much pain. Should I see a doctor?

I've heard in an interview stephen murray used to have a doctor in England who would practically weld his broken bones back together.... What's that process called and where can you get it done

I recall this, he had his collar bone done, broke it early in the week and was riding again by the weekend I think.

I recall something about being stiff and sore but it felt functional enough to use.

Some weird laser weld thing to "weld bones"
