I suspect you're referring to your hyoid bone.  This is a relatively rare bone to fracture.  Most bones heal in weeks to months depending upon your age & health.  This quesiton is best addressed by your ENT or whoever made the diagnosis.  Good luck!

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately I was trying to find out about a sports figure who took a puck to the throat and fractured the Adams Apple by reports. They rarely give time frames.


I am glad I found this place as I do have many medical issues and am happy that I got a response to this question fairly quickly.


Thanks Again!
