Hello! I have a recent proximal humerus fracture and am about 3 1/2 weeks out from closed reduction. How long should I continue to feel the bone move?

In brief: Not much longer

Assuming the bone is healing at a normal rate, I would suspect your "instability" symptoms should fade away in the next 2-3 weeks.
Most nondisplaced to mildly displaced bones heal in healthy individuals in about 6 weeks.

In brief: By that time-

-I would not expect you 2 feel that any more.
Be sure that you get into see your ortho guy or @ least call & tell him/her of it
