Its been almost 5 weeks since my distal clavicle resection. My recovery is going really well: my range of motion is basically complete with almost zero pain and my strength in various rotator cuff exercises has pretty much returned to pre-surgery levels. I have not done any big exercises yet that involve much delt, pec, or lat activity. I am basically pain free except when I press directly on the end of the clavicle, right around the AC joint. The bone itself is still sore.
Does anyone know, is this normal almost 5 weeks after surgery? Does the bone take longer to heal than the surrounding soft tissues will? I can’t wait to get back to my regular training - its been over a year. Just looking for some help.
