Hi Dr. Mark (All TTer's), I had a fairly bad break to my right clavical and had it repaired (ti plate and 6 screws). I had a very reputable doctor do the surgery and I was very happy with it. Its been about 4 weeks since surgery and I've started some light stretching by walking my fingers up and down the wall and circles. My pain is almost all gone where the break was, however, when working through my range of motion I am getting some pain in the back of my shoulder...is this normal as the nerves grow back? I read an article that recommended the plate removed so if in the case of breaking it again it would not pose greater risk to the main artery nearby...I was also wondering what your opinion is on keeping the plate in? Thanks!!
