How long DES it take to heal bone fracture in 81 year old after surgery (big toe fracture and wrist dislocation)?

In brief: 6-8 weeks

Bone fractures are generally healed completely in 6-8 weeks.
It is safe to say there is some degree of osteoporosis in a 81 year old but this is a general rule.

In brief: 6-8 weeks

Toe fractures usually heal in 6-8 weeks where the fracture has bridging bone on x-ray and the fragments become stable.
Swelling may persist for months. Wrist dislocations heal slower because the ligaments are ruptured and may take months to resolve.
