Compound fracture recovery time can be several to many months. It’s important to be patient during the healing time.
A number of factors affect how quickly you may recover from a compound fracture. Factors include:
- The severity of your injury.
- Your age. Children, for example, heal quicker than adults.
- Complications after treatment.
- Other health issues. If you have a disorder that interferes with blood flow, you may heal slower. Examples of such disorders include diabetes and peripheral arterial disease.
