broken clavicle

I am 31 yrs old and broke my right clavicle going 2 mph on a snowmobile. It's been 7 1/2 weeks, and the bone isn't together yet. My doctor says it's just slow healing. I asked him about putting a plate on it to speed up the healing process. He doesn't want to do surgery. Just wondering if I should get a second opinion. I know that theres not much to do for a broken colar bone for this is the third time I broke it. Broke in half this time the others just fractured. It's just getting fustrating as there's still alot I can't do. If anyone as any opinions It would be helpful..

Stabilizing ankle brace increases ankle stability. Perfect for playing basketball, volleyball or everyday activities.
