In brief: It depends

Return to work after an elbow injury depends on the type of work that is done the severity of the injury and the type of treatment was rendered.
In some cases to me use of the elbow is acceptable. But in more severe cases especially if surgery was used for treatment, a long period of time maybe needed for recovery.

In brief: Depends

The type of fracture and kind of work you will returning to is very important for you and your doctor to consider in returning to work.
