Hi, Thanks for writing to HCM. You have not mentioned about the type of surgery that you underwent for your collar bone. Anyway, carrying a laptop bag on your uninjured shoulder will not have any impact on your operated side. Just follow the advise given by your doctor as he knows what was done to you. Hope this helps
