How long des it take to heal bone fracture in 81 year old after surgery (big toe fracture and wrist dislocation)?

6-8 weeks

Bone fractures are generally healed completely in 6-8 weeks. It is safe to say there is some degree of osteoporosis in a 81 year old but this is a general rule.

Most toe fractures without out apparent deformity other than swelling heal with minimal treatment other than stiff soled opened toe shoe +- buddy taping. The great toe needs at least an xray and advice of a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon as to whether or not surgery is necessary to prevent deformity and or arthritis

Can I wear regular walking shoes for recovery after big toe fracture?

You should be able..

Open-uri20130708-31199-1yw8nmz
You should be able to wear a stiff soled shoe without difficulty. A break in the bones of the toes typically can be treated with splinting as long as it is not near a joint line (intra-articular). If it is, it may need a different type of immobilization such as an apropulsive shoe like a post-operative shoe or shoe such as MBT.

What is the best diet and routines I can add to my life to help the healing process of a bone fracture (broken big toe)?

That toe

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Fracture is getting to you. Relax, be thankful it was not worse. You didn't tell us how you broke it. One thing you can check is your vitamin d levels, many people are low. Make sure yours are normal, if not supplement as per your doc to get them normal. Again, your injury doesn't sound so severe, so try and relax. Sounds like you will heal fine.

How long does it take for a fracture in a big toe to heal?

It depends

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
A number of factors can affect bone healing- how badly fractured it is, whether it is still in alignment, what the treatment is, and if you smoke, drink a lot of soda and/or caffeine, among other factors. Usually, a time frame of 4-6 weeks is needed.

For a child how long does a fracture in the big toe take to heal?

4-6 weeks

Toe_fracture
That is the "normal" time range, but kids tend to heal faster. If there really IS a fracture, it's best to get an x-ray and make sure there is not any joint involvement. The big toe joints are really important in walking and running!

Dr. David Laha answered:

What will happen if I leave my toe fracture alone, will it heal on its own?

Usually

Extremity-lower-foot-big_toe
As long as the toe is in good alignment and it feels like it is improving, then it should heal. Stay in a stiff shoe and limit activity to tolerance. See your podiatrist is concerns
