how much time will my broken arm hurt?

Variable: Everyone is a little different in terms of how long discomfort after a broken bone will last. Other factors include how much you move the arm (limb) that was injured and your bone density. Typically fractures/breaks heal within 6-8 weeks and most of the pain occurs in the first 1-2 weeks if the break is stabilized in a cast or proper splint.
