The bump will get smaller over the next year, but it may not disappear completely. </p> <h3>Avoid contact sports</h3> <p>Your child should avoid high-impact contact sports for a minimum of four to six weeks after the sling comes off (unless you are told otherwise). </p> <p>If you have any concerns, contact your family doctor or the advanced practice nurse (APN) at the fracture clinic.</p><h2>Your child will need a sling</h2> <p>For the bone to heal, your child will need to wear a sling.
