I had surgery for a broken arm..how long until i can get better?

6-16 weeks

Arm_fracture
If you had surgery on your forearm the fracture should be healed in 6-8 weeks. The upper arm takes 12-16 weeks. If the surgery gives stable fixation you can use your arm after a couple of days for eating, writing and typing.

How painful is surgery to fix a broken arm?

Variable

Forearm_fracture
what type of fracture? Does it need surgery? Although our surgical interventions have progressed significantly surgery is still surgery... that being said pain control after arm/upperextremity surgery tends not to be horrible. Most of my patients have pain for 3-4 days and then are off narcotics.

nerves can be damaged very quickly and can take years to repair themselves,, unfortunately, sometimes no recovery takes place from my experience ,if recovery occurs there is some evidence of improvement in first 2-3 months after injury
