Hi, I have just fractured my radius and my patella other than a balanced diet and 3 glasses of milk a day should I be taking anything else? I am a 32-year-old male in good health.

So sorry to hear about your broken forearm and kneecap. I imagine your arm and affected leg are both immobilized so you may see some shrinking of the muscles under your casts or brace. Make sure you get physical therapy after they are removed to strengthen the muscles weakened by immobilization. A balanced diet and 4 servings of milk, yogurt or cheese a day should provide you with the calcium and vitamin D to support healing these broken bones.
