My Grand father who is 96 years old got hairline fracture of the rib. How long it will take to heal? His doctor said you dont need to come back for xray.

  • Have you googled something? Like "How long does it take to heal a line fracture of the rib?" May 17 '20 at 16:24
  • It say 6 to 8 weeks. Since he is very old it migjt take little longer than that.
