Is it true taking a baby aspirin (81 mg) daily inhibits bone growth of a healing fracture?

In brief: Seems to be so.

Discuss this with your physician(s), but yes.
It is true that Aspirin is one of the things that can delay or even disturb bone healing. Here is a web site that explains the issue pretty well: http://orthoinfo.Aaos.Org/topic.Cfm?Topic=a00374 but do talk with your doctors about your particular case. The cardiovascular benefits may outweigh the bone - or not. Good luck!
