    Went over the bars on my roadie a week ago and fractured my right collarbone. Not
    my first injury by far, ACL from bmx crash and fractured radius from mtb a few years back. This is my first roadie crash in 22 years and the black stuff is definitely painful to fall on !

    Researched surg vs conservative approach, going conservative at the moment with ortho specialist advice.

    Question is, what are other women's experience with this? I have a very noticeable lump on my shoulder, it's a distal third displaced fracture. My husband reckons the lump will be a nice trophy - hmmm ok for a guy to say that!

    Keen for feedback from others who have had a similar experience.

    how did it heal after all these months ? i had a pretty strong crash two days ago but i think nothing is broken except for a rib, ..maybe... you record is quite good, 1 crash in 2 decades, not bad !

    rib still hurts but less so im guessing not broken, together with strong arm and shoulder pain for a week and a miserable knee zone pain but for the first day only, i was going pretty fast and there was this dog, on the other side of the fence, i kept going and he crossed from under the fence to bitch me as they usually do but he timed poorly his move and came into the road straight in front of me ! he grouwled when i was on the floor so i thought he was also going to bite me for a second, all in all i was lucky, bike had minor damage so, thanks for asking :)
