2 doctors agree
In brief: I agree, it depends
This depends on several factors, age (kids heal much more quickly than adults), whether the fracture is widely displaced - suggests greater disruption of blood supply, your underlying medical condition (health people heal more quickly), where the fracture is (which bone, what location) and how the fracture was treated - operatively or non-operatively.
Good luck!
