  I think you will be fine

I broke my collarbone in a bike crash. At the time, I was not a paddler. But I've never noticed the collarbone interfering with paddling.

A friend broke his collarbone in a bike crash. It hurt him for at least five years. Apparently the bump bothered him and was sensitive. He later became a paddler, and I have not heard him whining about the collarbone or misalignment of bone interfering with paddling. He tends to be a guy who talks about it when things hurt, and if he doesn't whine about the collarbone when paddling, I think it means you don't need to be real concerned.

Every one of us is different, every collarbone break is different, and we all heal differently. So, your case is different than mine or my friend's. But, there are two data points for you.

Good luck with healing. Give it time.
