Re: broken collar bone/ sternum

i suffered a pretty heavy hit to the sternum,knocking me down and when I layed face down it was excruciating. Does this mean it is cracked or broken? Is there a treatment and should I go to the hospital? could it just be a simple thing or can it wait? I live many miles from a hospital and would rather wait til tomorrow
