I am 40 years old male, fell of from my bike and hurt my right collar bone (hair line fracture) on Feb10th 2016, my doctor advised 6 weeks rest, braces for both my shoulders, its been 50 days now, sometimes I still feel the pain and found slight swelling also, cannot lift or raise my hand.
1. How long should I have to wear these braces on shoulder.
2. How long will the pain still be.
3. How long will it take my hand to come to normal position.
4. Any other precautions to be taken.
I would really appreciate if you could kindly advice me on the above details, kindly let me know if any other details are required.

Lybrate-user ji as your Dr. Advised you can remove your braces now. I mean consult your Dr. He wil take x ray nd if the fracture has healed wil remove your braces. As far as raising or lifting your hand is concerned you need to consult a physiotherapist who wil give you first passive exercise therapy and than active physiotherapy traetment. And I think in one and half to two months you wil b able to raise and lift your hand.
