Health Query

I am a 22 year old male. I had a mid-shaft oblique humerus fracture which is fixed by ss plate implant. After 10 weeks post surgery, I met with my surgeon and he said that your bone is 90% united by looking at the x-ray. I can still see an oblique gap in my humerus. I have been taking calcium supplements since surgery. Was the gap supposed to fill within 12 weeks?
