Hey man
i broke my collar bone playin footballa few years ago. they just put me in a slinga nd some figure 8 thing to pull my shoulders back. usually it takes about a month and a half to heal. I would much rather break my collar bone than my ankle. at least u can pee standing up with a broken collar bone LOL they claim the collar bone is the most painful but i disagree. just relax and let it heal and take pain pills. mine was a clean break also and healed just fine. just relax and ice it alot

Were you wearing a chest protector? If so, what kind? If not, do you think it would have made a difference? :)

My chest protector is more like a roost deflector. Pretty light weight . Maybe a neck brace and heavier duty protector would work.

I know it is kinda late, but, I just went from a light weight roost deflector to a fox full chest protector. It was expensive, about $125. I zip tied a small roost bag to the front of the protector to keep my keys, phone, wallet and some small tools. I recently ate it pretty good with that protector on and I landed on my shoulder. The shoulder pads saved my shoulder and I am very gun ho on these full size protectors now. When you get healed up, you might want to try one. Personally, I am 42 and getting too old to take unnecessary risks anymore. Take care, and heal up soon. :)
