Just an update on my status.

I had an appointment on the 5 of Sep, they took and X-Ray, and afterwards I had an appointment with the doctor.
My bone was fully recovered, and the doctor told me I can do any sports.

So on that day in the evening I went for my Kyokushin karate class.
I still couldn't do pushups, but the rest went good.
Been busy after that with going regular swimming, and karate. Sunday's I am back at riding trails.
Started slowly with some blue trails, do small jumps.

I feel good now. All though I cannot do any DH until I can manage to do 10 push-ups.
Today I am starting with my HITT training. Should be fully recovered in Dec.

Feels good to be back riding again.

Welcome back. Once you start training you'll hopefully see improvents quite fast. I can do most stuff normally with my injured side. Still feels weird though. I think i might have a screw being pushed out, got a pointy lump on top of the plate now. I'll have to schedule an appointment to get that looked at soon.

I get those pops once in a while fielonator. I thought I was getting a screw loose too at first but now know it's not. It's some kind of muscle pop. I only get them when I push too hard like on a heavy bench press or overhead press lift. So far they go away in about a week if I don't continue to aggravate it with more heavy lifting.

Barbell front squats are what hurt with that damned plate in, the thickness of the plate is just enough to lose all room so the barbell sits right on it and that frickin hurts.

I'm around a year and a half post surgery.

Wow so long still issues with the plate.
So there might be a change I might have issues with my plate as well in the long run....

I already frustrated I cannot do pushups now. Hopefully that goes away.

Sorry, I was a little unclear. I bench and overhead press heavy a couple times a week but the pops don't happen every time I lift hard. It's just when I do get a pop it's when my form breaks down letting my elbows flare while pressing extremely hard.

Has happened about 4 times since surgery, the last pop about 3 months ago. The occurrences are happening less frequent.

The year I reach my insurance deductible I'm going to schedule to get this plate removed. Doc said only about 10% of patients have issues they never get used to and apparently I'm one of them. But then again it's heavy back pack straps and barbells sitting on the plate that is the issue, not just everyday discomfort.

There are other exercises to build up to full pressups. The same movement but stood leaning on a counter top is a good start, then lower using stairs, a bench or a low wall. There's also ones done on the floor but resting on your knees rather than toes. Expect some pain, soreness or stiffness as you've had a long rest from this sort of movement. You'll get there in the end.

Another thing to consider is where the break is, theres lots of soft tissue and muscles that attach to the collar bone. So not all breaks are the same. Depending on where the plate is it can cause more or less issues with "soft tissue" if you disturb soft tissue it just takes longer and those pops are probably scar tissue breaking up...which is a good thing. I have two plates on my collar bone, took me a solid year to get 100% rang of motion back.

I’m just over 5 weeks into my healing process but I’m 50 so probably going slower. I have the same issues with the callus forming but it’s still a hassle with the bones moving and stuff. Just following doctors orders but from day one she told me with recovery, PT and everything it would be 4 months until 100%. Mine is a closed displaced with splintering that is 5mm displaced. I was right on the fence for surgery but doctor really wanted solid bone to form rather than plates and screws. Been a long 5 weeks and doesn’t feel too stable yet.

It’s my right arm which is my dominant so totally hassle with work and everything. My wife is ready to pull her hair out.
