Heh. Not in my case. 1.5" displacement. It took 6 months to "join" and another 2 years before it was declared "healed". It hurt every day for the next 4 years and now only hurts a few times per week.

In my crash, I highsided...landed on my head which caused the bottom of my Arai to break my collarbone in two places.

7 years on, it's a huge lump and my left clavicle is nearly 2" shorter than my right. (see where the bones overlap)
