As Dr Bijlani has rightly said 3 months is the min required time. But you should be aware of the fact that neck Femur has poor blood supply and can go into a condition called osteonecrosis. This is not surgeon related complication it is a known complication to see for. Need to rule out this condition also.

It normally takes three months after surgery for the fracture to heal which I am seeing that three months is over and the reason you are asking this question is that the person operated is still not resumed her normal life so please consult with xrays or get new xrays done to know the status of the fracture healing
