I would still recommend you to consult a doctor as health is wealth.

[br]I cracked my humeral head on 3 sides of the ball part, like a C shape, on Dec 28 and after x-rays was given a sling and swathe as it is not displaced. I saw an orthopaedic doctor on Jan 2 who said I should continue with the sling and swathe but then start light motion exercises 3 weeks from then – which is about now.[br] [br]Im a little worried as I have now started to try to move it, but when I try to lift my arm out to the side it pops at the shoulder and is very painful. It hurts when I try to extend my elbow but sort of a muscle ache which I would expect after a month in one position and I had a lot of bruising on my bicep. My movement is getting better every day but am I expecting too much too soon? Ive read it can take up to 6 weeks for a fracture to mend?[br] [br]I DONT have INSURANCE or much money so am reluctant to go back to the doctor, pay for more x-rays and consultation if I’m just going to be told its too soon and to give it more time.[br] [br]Any advice would be much appreciated I have electronic copies of my x-rays. [br] [br]Im 27 years old, non- smoker, in good shape and have been maintaining a healthy diet with extra calcium and vitamins since the accident[br] [br] [br]Thank you[br]
