Hello, Herry Purwanto, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The collarbone fracture generally requires a healing time of 6-8 weeks, it is influenced by many factors, such as age, shape of the fracture, the patient's health condition (eg diabetes, infection), etc. To recover fully, it can take several months and each individual can be different. To find out whether you are allowed to do fitness activities, especially activities that burden the shoulders and arms, you should check with the doctor who treats you, so that it is evaluated whether the bones attached to the pen are well connected and there are no complications. The doctor will do a physical examination and if necessary X-ray photographs to see whether the pen and bone are in good condition.
If you want to start exercising, do light exercise first, of course, with guidance and permission from your doctor to treat you. If the doctor who treats you sees that your condition is good and is appropriate for exercise, then he will provide exercise advice that is right for you.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
