In brief: Not to worry

Worrying about things you cannot control or change and that may never appear is a lot of wasted energy.
This doctor thinks you would be wise to spend your time on other issues.

I agree with Dr. Killian, but advise you follow with your doctor if the area of prior break is painful, red, or swollen.
