it will take almost 8 weeks as this is the joint of lower limb which have to bear the stress of whole body. initially no weight bearing then partial to full eight bearing will be helpful.. After that the physiotherapy sessions will be the right and the most helpful decision.

It depends upon the extent of the fracture which would make the time period differ. As this is the weight bearing portion of your body healing will be dependent upon how you rest the leg, it can take upto 4 weeks to 3 months of no weight bearing depending upon the extent of the fracture. Your progression and rehabilitation will be dependent on how you take rest and do the necessary care for your foot for an effective and proper healing. In 3 weeks mild weight bearing will be advised to see the pain and how you can tolerate it. You're likely to have the leg immobilized by a cast. You should keep your leg raised and avid any weight bearing during the time period of healing.
Next Steps
Follow the steps as advised
Health Tips
If condition persists or worsens visit the orthopedician at the earliest
