As per your x ray image it's not displaced fracture.  U can try POP for 6months non weight bearing, surgery is required to keep the fractured site in anatomicall position. So if required you have to go surgery u can walk within 3 months. Thank you DR.ANDREW JAYASINGH senior sports physiotherapist porur chennai AJS clinic
