My break was bad too, the doc said if I had broken my right collar bone the way the left broke they would have operated and plated the 2 halves together but since it was my left collar bone and I am right handed they let it be. I also wore the 2 strap set up. I had a pretty good bump sticking up and the collar bone sure looked crooked ( much better looking now ) After about 6 months I had about 80% movement/full range. I was back playing the last 5 hockey games of the season. The beginning of ball season was a little tricky. Reaching up for an over the head catch with my glove in the left hand would have me crinching but I think in the end ball was good for it. Automatic therapy. 6 months in I could ride with out feeling any pain. 8 months in and 100% movement. It'll all be good, and you will heel a lot quicker the I did, age is everything in the heeling process. Good luck.
