    Are these sentences correct:
    1-I went there with my left arm broken.
    2-I went there with an arm broken.

    The first one is passable. The second one is, I think, not a good sentence. (In the second sentence, an arm broken would seem to be a noun phrase.)

    A broken arm would be more nnatural, but it is possible.
