If I broke my arm (proximal humerus fracture), what is the recovery time like?

Proximal humerus. It may take 6 weeks for boney healing, depending upon the displacement of the fracture, the health of the individual, and the quality of the surrounding soft tissues.
Fracture humerus. This fracture should take about 6 weeks to heal and then you will have to do therapy to regain motion and strength.
