Sorry, this was the only bone related section I could find.
My 13 year old son just had clavicular fracture surgery in Austria, strange experience, and I was given NO therapy instructions, can you give me some ideas? It's been 4 weeks since surgery.

You really need to call the doctor's office and ask for a referral to physical therapy. This isn't something you can do over the internet since nobody here has access to your son's medical info and a lot of rehab depends on the type of injury.

I'm not clear on whether you live in Austria or were just visiting? If you were just visiting then take your son and all the records to a local orthopedic surgeon for follow-up care.
