Re: Distal clavical excision?

Thanks for the info, guys.

I'm now 7 hours post-op. Nerve block has not worn off, so I can't feel my arm from the trap to my thumb (tingly like its half asleep). Standard distal clavicle resection by orthoscopy, and some small cleanup. Yay! I was afraid it was going to be something more. Hopefully this takes no more than 3 months to get back into 100% ROM and 90-95% strentgh, since they arent removing anything fuctional. Sling for three days, then I get to start PTing it with Codman's exercises. Woot!
