Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hello. My very good friend has collar bone fracture. I have never faced this kind of injury and I am very concerned for her. I am not too familiar with medical field and I want to ask you following: is collar bone fracture serious injury? Will she need to go to surgery? I hope you will understand my care and you will answer me this.


Hello. I really do understand your care. I cannot say that collar bone fracture is serious. This injury requires resting fro patient. Healing can take 12 weeks. Your friend probably takes some drugs for killing pain (because pain is normal for collar bone fracture). In some cases this injury requires surgical intervention, but I do not know in what cases; so, you should ask someone else for this, please.
