injury at work

i fell at work and suffered a radial head bone fracture. the doctors told me it takes 2-3 wks. for the bone to heal on its own and 4-6 wks. for the ligaments etc. to get back to normal. for the past 5 wks. the pysical therapists have been stretching my arm. the just took another xray and its still fractured like it was day 1. 1st they said 2-3 wks for the fracture to heal now they say 4-6 for the fracture to heal theyre sending me to a specialist and talking possible surgery kinda late dont ya think need to get back to work can/should i sue the hospital by the way ive seen 5 different people and only 1 of them was a phd. and i only saw him once.
