Umpredictable: Nobody can predict it. Sometimes fractures do not heal well requiring bone electrical estimulation. If the fracture is large or with too much separation from both borders the orthopodist will recommend surgery.

Why is it more difficult for an eighty year old woman to recover from the flu than a thirty year old?

WHEN YOU ARE 80,: You typically are dealing with aging related conditions like heart disease and diabetes, just to mention the 2 most common. Chronic medical conditions tend to make your immune system a bit more sluggish at times.
The good news is, over 80 years you have been exposed to a lot more bugs than someone in their 30's, so your immune "memory cells" have been programmed and are ready to minimize problems.
