radial neck fracture xray advice

hi all,

I recently had a fall as a result of a sporting injury about 6 weeks ago ago. here is the latest scan taken 2 weeks ago. https://postimg.cc/mc2qk0mx

waited 2 weeks to get a scan. To quote the report: " partial thickness tear of the extensor tendon measuring 6x6mm & there is a non displaced radial neck fracture"

i was put into a cast and sling for 2 weeks.

after the 2 weeks - i had another scan done. the fracture hadnt fully healed. to quote, full union has not been achieved.

the doctor has advised me to now be placed in another cast for 3 weeks. the physiotherapist recommended just a sling..

any tips or advice? would it be possible to please review the latest scan: https://postimg.cc/mc2qk0mx

i've never broken a bone before.

many thanks.

Hello~I really think you need to ask your physician to explain the scans, we are not doctors here nor are we trained to interrupt x-rays.
