    I have shattered my collarbone- and how serious this is may be subjective- But mine was bad.. not just a clean break and a few impressions if you are writing about a similar instance:

    1> you don't feel the pain for the first 20 minutes or so. Adrenaline is a thing.
    2> after that its a LOT of pain.
    3> if its shattered it takes 3-4 months to recover even to really use your hand much. you can maybe weakly hold a pencil but thats about it for the first few weeks.
    4> mine healed but 20 years later it still obvious.. a huge jutting bump as the bone overcompensated to build up what it needed. bodies are pretty amazing-
    Malik and Gen like this.
