Post your answer

The bone itself stays the same I think...but the fracture is always going to be a bit more fragile...Sh*t, I really dont know this one...nice one speed

Weaker or the same as it was before, depending on the severity of the break, where it is and how much time you give it to heal.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Mad piper
the place where it has healed is stronger because the area haa a build up of bone material. usually people who have the misfortune to break this bone again break it above or below the first break. Breaking bones does make the bone less flexible so in regards to the whole bone handling stress it is over all weaker.

When you break a bone, it heals and I think it has the same amount of density that it did before.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Depending on the type of break, it should grow back stronger. The area that was broken becomes more dense and is therefore stronger. You are less likely to have another break in that area. Hope this helps!
