My wife has fractured her right humerus very cleanly, and she is in hospital with her arm in a collar sling.
Surgery is an option but there is also a second one where the arm will be kept in a sling so that the fractured bone will come together again as the weight of the arm will should realign the 2 parts.
What time frame would you anticipate for this to heal itself.
