Fractured neck

hi, i broke my neck Last october (C1,C2) & suffered a head injury (subdural haemotoma) i required a screw fixation in the neck to secure the bones together. I have been wearing a Miami j collar for 4 months now, i have no disability and can function normally my neck has healed well. I went for a CT scan today and my neck is still fractured no change, from last time i went for a CT scan (4 weeks ago) all was fine on Flexion Extension with the fracture and screw in correct postion. The registrar said the collar should come,he just needs the consultants confirmation. Does this mean the fracture will never heal relying on the screw for fixation, or will it in time? im not worried if my neck is still fractured the screw is pretty robust, will it limit anything
