Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

Normal time taken for fracture to heal is around 90 to 100 days i.e 3 months... if it is more than that, the fracture is called as delayed union... causes are deficiency of calcium, minerals, proteins, mobility of the fracture site., decreased blood supply... need to improve your nutrition with egg, jaggery, calcium rich foods, milk etc....
Hope I have answered your question..
