non union sternum fracture
hi, 15 months ago i was involved in a car accident and suffered a fractured sternum mid chest. i went for a further x-ray after three months but the fracture had not healed.
i was advised to remain off work longer and refered to a cardio thorasic surgon, several more months went by but still no joy on the healing, i am back at work on light duties bit still experience pain and cracking local to fracture. the surgon i am seeing has offered me surgery, but the idea of having my rib cage opened and a plate incerted behind my sternum scares me. is there an alternative to this procedure or is it the best option.
many thanks
terry
