AC Joint Advice

The results of my MRI today showed degeneration in both of my AC joints. According to my doctor this condition never really gets any better because the bone itself is partially broken down. The only 2 real options according to him (and he seems very knowledgeable) are to learn to live with it or have the ends of my collar bones removed. According to him, and from what I have read, surgery success rates are very high, although I may not be back to normal for up to a year.
Do any of you have any first hand experience? Other options? Advice?
Thanks
