Hello, elbow itself is a very big part, so I m not sure where in elbow joint you have fracture. It must be an extra articular fracture so you are being treated in plaster. Generally after plaster removal there is more of a stiffness and little pain during initiation of movement. You being a young boy can regain full range of movement in very short time if you do exercises religiously, maximum time limit of 3 months (maximum). So no need to worry. Thank you.
