Does anyone know what the average time for broken bones to heal is? My mom is 53 and she broke one of the bones on her left foot. It was almost 3 weeks ago and she is still in pain. Is healing slower that it should be with her because of the osteoporosis that she suffers from? I would like to know why broken bones healing is it same for everyone.

Because it depends on many factors, such as the type of bone broken, the age of the person, and the way in which the bone is broken, also health of the person. Broken bones take a varying amount of time to heal, and diseases that degenerates bone tissue like osteoporosis, may cause one to have far longer healing times for broken bones As well one may need more complicated treatment like surgery. In general, small broken bones with simple fractures take about 4 weeks to heal in small children, In teenagers and adults, say for example a finger or wrist bone that has a simple fracture will take about 6 weeks to heal and Larger broken bones, for example the bones in the thigh, would take a great deal longer to heal, usually 6 weeks to 3 months in the average healthy adult.
