In brief: No
Should heal in a few weeks.
Most fractures even with slight displacement heal in 6 -8 weeks. Non displaced, hairline-not bad should heal faster.

In brief: Yes
Your hands, feet, and face have a lot of sensory nerves and sensory representation on the brain.
Any injury to these areas will be more noticeable for a longer period of time than injuries to other areas.
