In brief: Six weeks
It depends on the type of fracture - an elbow fracture may involve the radius, the ulna, the humerus, or a combination of the three.
It also depends on the severity of the injury and other health conditions (diabetics and smokers tend to heal more slowly). In general, though, a teenager with an elbow fracture should heal the fracture in about six weeks.

Does depend on bone ( humerus, radial and ulna all come together)broken and any other healing issues.
