Massage: Ice massage and deep tissue massage is often helpful. There are devices available online that allow a patient to administer the massage themselves if they don't have a family member available. If that doesn't help, injections can be helpful.

2 - 3 months: Usually it takes 6-8 weeks for fractures to heal. Then you will need some time to rehab and restore strength and rom. Your surgeon can give you the best estimate.

Yes: Fractures can cause significant bleeding if there is involvement of blood producing bone marrow. It is usually restored in time with healing of the fracture and restoration of blood stores in a healthy patient.
