    Say:

    Doctors told me that if somebody's bones get fractured because of T.B. it is very hard for that person to recover.

    Tarheel's sentence is better than either of yours.

    Re: If bones get fractured because of TB.

    Both of your versions are in fact made of two sentences.

    .
    The only change between post one and post three is "The" before "doctors". The "corrected" sentence has the same problems as the first one. It is awkward at best. And it is unnatural. Use "difficult" if you insist. Otherwise, I urge you to use my sentence. (No. It's not because it would hurt my feelings if you didn't.)

    Re: If bones get fractured because of TB.

    Note that 'T.B.' should be 'TB'. Tuberculosis (TB) is one word. Terrabyte also shares 'TB'.
    If you abbreviated 'Terre Blanche', it would be 'T.B.', because it's two words.
