@a-frame81 Just been to the surgeon. Gave me the all clear :P Bones are healing well. Have been given the ok to ride with cleats, some jogging - (if I want).

He went through issues that may arise hopping back into ski boots (feeling the screws) and the small operation to remove them if necessary. It's a bigger job to remove the nail.

He did laugh when I told him that I broke the collarbone a few weeks ago.

TBH I won't ever bother removing the scres or the pin as they don't cause me any issues. Much more preferable to opting for another round of surgery.

You realise you are depriving some junior surgeon of an operation!

Probably but I like not having to recover from needless surgery.

Just booked my ski trip - anniversary of the break.

I've tried my ski boots, doesn't appear to bother the screws. However the proof will be in the sliding.

I still can't run but it's more like a shuffle akin to Cliff Young.
