Ribs & collar bone

Postby chriss » Sat Apr 07, 2012 4:10 pm

Had a real flyer on the bike yesterday, now have 4 fractured ribs & partially dislocated collar bone.

Question is how long do these take to mend?

Thanks in advance Chris.

Sounds bad, do you have any pictures?
Best person to ask about healing times is probably your Dr :)

Haha, yes the Dr is the right person, but had to wait for hospital appointment.
3-6 weeks for the shoulder, ribs can be significantly longer. Hey ho lots of doing f-all then I guess...

Photos, sadly not, luckily bruising is minimal & I have nothing bone like sticking out. All in I am one very lucky lad.
