In brief: Time and ICE

Fractured (broken) bones are painful injuries.
Pain will decrease with time as it heals. A brace or cast is helpful to limit motion of the broken fragments. Pain medication is often necessary to improve comfort. Avoid putting weight on the involved extremity. Ice the injured area 20min every hour. See an orthopaedic surgeon for further treatment if you have not done so already.
