Broken clavicle question

Two months ago I broke my clavicle in half right in the middle. I wore the figure 8 brace for 6 weeks. It appears to have healed OK and I don't have a droopy shoulder. I do have points where the bone has healed above and below the break (where the broken ends are).

My problem is I can NOT do any bench presses without severe pain. I can only do about 1/2 the weight I used to do. I think it's due to the points rubbing against nerves/bones. How long will the points stay there? Is this something I should have a Doctor look at and pehaps try and fix?
