    Hi all,

    Broke my collarbone about 2 weeks ago, and havent been wearing my sling for about a week because after my 1 week return appointment my doctor told me to try and keep my arm moving.

    However after reading many forums they say taking it out this early can be detremental to the healing, should i be wearing it more permanently? Did he mean just every now and then?

    I do have a rather significant lump,


    Wear it permanently until it gets to at least 3 weeks plus .I did that last year and it hurt when I took it out so early but if your doctor says its okay then you should probably listen to their advice
