I am in my eighties and recently acquired a humeral head fracture from a fall. I wasn’t doing so good with this arm prior to this fall and didn’t really use it anyway.  My surgeon does not want to fix it.  Is this ok or should I get a second opinion?


Literature shows decent result in no surgical correction in a small population of older individuals who are not in pain or do not functionally rely heavily on their arm.  In the future if this becomes a problem it can be addressed then.
