I had surgery on my left hand to repair a broken metacarpal. What happens if I break it again?

In brief: Nothing new

If it heals well it will be no more susceptible to another injury than if it were uninjured.

In brief: More surgery

The bone should heal well and be very strong.
If you fracture the same spot however you may have some healing problems.
