    I have broken right clavicle on the last week of June in 2007.
    Since then I have not seen Doctor again because I was heeled and have no problem playing sports and social activities.
    However, I would like to know whether I have a chance to be DQ just by have a fracture history on my right clavicle because I still can feel the unevenness on my clavicle, even though it feels all right.

    I have DODMERB exam on this thursday (sept. 6th).

    Should I just tell Doctor that I have no problem doing physical activities? so that I can pass DODMERB? or am I going to be okay as long as I can provide future references from local orthopedic doctor?

    * Fractured clavicle was my the first bone fracture in my life.

    A fractured clavicle, as long as it is completely healed should not be an issue. I'm not sure if you will have a chance to read this before your examination, but if the examining physician mentions that it is fully healed there should not be an issue.

    You may want to see your family physician and get a note stating the same just in case DoDMERB requests all the records as well.
