Re: Fracture united Still Swollen?

The amount of time for a fracture to heal varies widely from person to person and the location and stability of the fracture. 5 weeks is not a huge amount of time to expect a bone to heal. We are way too impatient with our injuries. Just because there is bone callus noted on x-ray does not mean complete healing. The inside part oif the bone is still healing. It will be months. I always tell my patients they will still swell and know the weather changes for many months after I discharge them.

As far as it being stronger, that depends if the fracture healed in the best possible position.
