What is the healing period for a hairline fracture?
Q: I am 20 years old. Three weeks ago, I suffered from a hairline fracture on my shin bone during a football match. I was hospitalised for 4 days with a slab plaster, then a permanent plaster was done. I have been prescribed calcium and a vitamin pill. How much time will it require to heal?
A:In this type of fracture, it usually takes about two months to heal and plaster will have to be continued for this period.
