Customer Question

I have a fractured collarbone and after a month I am left with terrible pins and needles in my fingers and also with a very protruding collarbone on my right side. The doctor at A&E said it would be like this forever. It"s quite ugly to look at. Is there anyway that it could be pushed back?

Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.That is indeed unfortunate. The bone is pressing on the nerves causing the pins and needles. The protruding bone can be reset by an orthopedic surgeon by closed reduction. This is done under general anesthesia. You will need to see an orthpedic surgeon soon.
