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.
