Do broken bones in the leg grow back stronger after they are break?

Not usually: A leg bone fracture will appear on x-ray to have more calcium in the healing area (for a while), but a bone's strength depends on the microscopic structure inside the bone, not just the amount of calcium. In a growing child, a well-healed bone can be stronger 6 months after the break, than before the break, because the child is now older so all his bones should be stronger than 6 months earlier. ...Read more

I have fracture on my right leg and my consultant has applied illixarov on my leg so I bought purblack resin can it make my regenerated bone strong?

External Fixation: IIlizarov was the inventor of external fixation for fractures and certain surgeries. As long as the fixator was applied properly and the bones are in the correct anatomic alignment, and as long as you are a healthy individual without a lot of comorbidities (other medical problems that would affect healing), your bones will be perfectly strong when you heal. Healing should take 6-8 weeks ...Read more
