Clavicle fracture

Right side Collarbone fractured on 3Sep16 due to road accident. Used clavicle support with arm hanger alongwith 25 days bed rest as recommended by doctor after xray. Followed with 7 day regular checkups & xray. Last xray was done 22sep & results was good. Doctor suggested to remove clavicle support after 30sep & arm hanger 10days later on. I moved to gurgaon on 27th sep to join work, so used clavicle support till 14 October & now using arm hanger while walking . Now i can do little movement without any pain like can eat/brush. Please help me what should i have to do means to consultant with doctor or physiotherapist , go for xray or should take some precautions/exercises at home only.
