Question about displaced clailvicle fracture ...

Posted , 1 user is following.

i had a bike accident yesterday and went to the ER, where they diagnosed "closed clavicle fracture" they sent me home saying to follow up with ortho and that likely surgery wasnt needed. i called to make ortho appt and they said they can't see me until Friday, 5 days later. i followed up with the ER and they said it was a closed fracture and displaced. Now I freaking out a bit... do all displaced clavicles require surgery? they send me home and did not seem too concerned that I would need it... but still. i know only the ortho can confirm, but does displaced automatically mean surgery?
