If you suffered a fracture, you are eligible to donate blood again once the fracture has healed and any cast or splint has been removed.

Usually, a fracture that has required surgery prevents donation for at least four months. However, if the surgically treated fracture is in your fingers or toes, you may be able to donate blood sooner.
