In brief: Depends on where

One can break the same bone twice, but the likelihood of having the break occur in the same exact location is low since the healed fracture is often times stronger than the original bone.

In brief: It possible

If you healed that bone good, it is possible if you expose it to the same trauma it will break.
Good luck . Thanks.
