Child with broken ulna and radius. Closed reduction done. Will the arm come back to normal?

My son, 13- broke his radius bone was casted 4 weeks healing well, accidentally slipped at a party, floor was wet (10 days after cast was removed,)re fractured same fracture , displaced this time, and the ulna fractured as well. Closed reduction was done, he's casted once again. Doc says angulation is still 10 degrees which he feels is ok, because he has sufficient growth left in growth plates. I'm still worried, will his arm ever be like it was?

Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
Do not panic.
the bones should be alright after 6 weeks.The angulation will correct itself with growing age.As your son's bones will grow till the age of 18 there is a good chance of minimal deformity if the bones are set properly.
Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries kindly direct them to me.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
