broken collar bone hurts?

Yep, I bet it does: Most heal without surgery without resulting in significant residual pain and/or dysfunction. If the doctor is concerned that it won't heal without surgery or that it would heal and result in pain and/or dysfunction, the doctor will discuss surgery. Those that require surgery usually do great after surgery.

Be seen: Would want to be seen and evaluated. Ice, sling, and medication can all help reduce pain from a broken collarbone.
