In brief: What does ortho say?

If non-union occurs, may need surgical intervention.
There are experimental use of electrical currents on joints where non-union has occurred - would ask your orthopedist about that, as well as making sure you are getting adequate intake of calcium and vitamin d, as well as good nutrition in general.
