Hello!

At your age healing is faster.

With multiple fractures and comminuted fractures the healing is delayed. Like if you have two or more bones involved you would require time for healing.

Take all the precautions, eat healthy and follow up after a month for a repeat X-ray and to be sure of proper progressive healing.

Take care!
