I now have a titanium plate held on with screws, a giant band-aid covering the operation site, a new sling and a fresh supply of pain killers.
The surgeon looks pleased with the xray alignment of my clavicle, and I am pleased to see a "normal" silhouette shoulder line again.
Home again - Atom Ant welcomed me with beautiful chicken soup.
Thanks to everybody who has sent messages of support and encouragement.
Ride safe folks - falling off sux.

I wasn't able to keep my review appointment this week due to being stuck in bed with some evil virus that had me reaching into Phil's suitcase of courage and coming out empty handed. (Atom Ant enjoyed the quiet part of the week when I couldn't talk). Surgery review postponed till next week.
I am hoping that the review x-rays are going to show that the clavicle is finally knitting. The scar is very neat, and looks like it will gradually fade, with the hardware not too obvious underneath.
BUT. And it is a very annoying BUT. The shoulder still doesn't want to play. Although at times it can seem to me like my shoulder function is improving, in reality I am just getting better at using my scapula to hitch my arm around.
This is going to need more "something" - and that "something" is not yet decided.
I thinks it's not going to be fun.

Happy to do that, but I haven't been back on 2 wheels yet, not even on the trainer. Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of my life including to get on the trainer. Will be in touch when I can get a handle on where I am in relation to my functionality.
