What's the reason why a collar bone won't heal?

My friend had a drop seizure and broke he's collar bone just over 2 months ago and it still hasn't healed I want to know what are the sort of resins as to why they won't heal

has your friend been having regular check up's with the doctor? if so im sure the doctor would have picked up on it by now. when your friend initially broke his collar bone he would have had x-rays done and the doctor would have been able to see if it needed surgery, and if it did, then it would have happened that day. those kinds of bones take a long time to heal. when my brother broke his collar bone many many years ago he had a sling on for about 3 months. it is probably healing very well, but it still hurts. it has been almost a year since I broke my elbow and it still hurts.

I suppose he might have need of an operation, but he must have seen the doctor. He could get another medical opinion.

The only medical opinion he's had is to not let too many people touch him

The severity of the breaking of the collar bone is the cause for delayed healing. It may take several months for the collar bone to heal especially with the kind of movement that one is involved in after that. If there is pan associated with the lack of healing, then you should follow up with an orthopedic surgeon for more help.

I broke my collar bone many years ago. I was in traction in the hospital for 1 month and a collar brace for a year. They just take a very long time to heal.

No but he had a sling on for almost 2 months then he's doctor said to him it won't heal so I'm thinking he's doctor has told him to take the sling off
