I do hope she is feeling better. However, the egg was probably already in the works before she got injured. Do not be surprised if she takes a few weeks or even months to start laying regularly again. Her body is going to give priority to healing right now. The more you can help her with supportive care, the faster she will get back to laying normally. Make sure she gets extra protein, vitamins and probiotics for at least a few weeks.
The darker and brighter colored fruits and vegetables are best. Kale and dark green lettuce are good, spinach in moderation. Berries are also an excellent source of vitamins and anti-oxidants.

Herbs like parsley, rosemary, mint and oregano are also very helpful.
Oh, and some lavender can help to calm her and help with blood flow. Dandelion greens and plantain can probably be found in your yard and are both very good.
