Glad to hear that surgery is now a more accepted option. It was never even mentioned to me as one. One thing I would recommend is once your comfortable with the "set" of the bone get occasional massages and chiropractic adjustments. Those really helped me return to the pre-crash state of body normality. At one point I did 3 massages and 2 adjustments in a week and I feel like that was a real turning point in my recovery. After that I continued with a once a month routine as maintenance
.
My right shoulder is lower than my left now... And its got a big lump.

I can give a good A : B comparison of surgery vs not. Surgery is stiffer to begin with. Non-Surgery hurts more, has more deformation, Is a lot weaker, and has taken 2x as long to heal (i'm at 16 weeks vs 8 weeks w/ surgery). Mobility/Range of motion is worse on the non-surgery shoulder/clavical (main issue is reaching across my chest from right to left at shoulder level)
