AC Joint Reconstruction Surgery HELP

I recently underwent surgery for a separated acromioclavicular joint. It was displaced by over 200%. The surgery consisted of an arthroscope incision as-well-as a 3 inch x 1/4 inch incision to access the joint. The joint was then repaired by drilling two holes through the clavicle and securing it using grafts. I was in a sling for 6 weeks and will have a total recovery time of greater than 4 months. Can anyone tell me what I can expect as far as permanent loss in function as well as for the permanent disfigurement for the scaring? I'm not looking for compensation numbers. I only looking for average range of PPD after having such a surgery. As-well-as what you think the scar will be rated as in relation to the body as a whole. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!
