100 days of happiness - day 60

So, I trollied off to the fracture clinic this morning, and got my x-rays done, then went to see my consultant, the delightful Mr. Wee!

Mr Wee explained the nature of my fracture - an impacted humeral head fracture.  What that means in simple Dizzo terms is that the crack is across the top of my humerus (upper arm bone), and the 'impacted' element is that the humerus has smooshed upward into the humeral head, which in turn has pushed everything in that part of the world (collarbone and shoulderblade mainly) upward slightly, and that would explain the pronounced 'nobbly bit' I can feel on my left shoulder, and why I initially thought it was disocated.
