Brief Answer:
Calcium and multivitamin supplements

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Commonest cause for the non union is faulty surgical fixation and the next common cause for the non union is poor nutrition or deficiency of calcium and multivitamins.

Since the fixation is revised I suggest you to concentrate on the nutrition. You should be taking calcium supplements like Tab Shelcal 500 mg once in a day after breakfast and Bcomplex capsules for a minimum of 3 months.

Hope, I answered your query.
