Hi,Welcome to HCM.This could be due to ligamental and soft tissue injury around as the xray is negative and ct confirms soft tissue swelling.It would take atleast 10 days to 2 weeks,as its bony trauma with soft tissue injury.
Remedy-
-Motrin Syr x 5 days
-Cold Compresses to controll tissue edema
-Rest in Shoulder sling.
Script from GP and Second opinion from OrhtoSurgeon.
Hope this would help you to resolve your query.
