Fracture operation Y/N?

I had a fracture where the bone has come out of the skin slightly in my leg below calf muscle and above ankle. POP has been kept in that spot. I have seen the doctor has he has recommend surgery. I want to know if surgury is the only option or I can let the body heal on it's own. What will be the duration to heal?

The best way to treat is to get it operated ..esp if the bone was sticking out during injury ..I would strongly recommend you against waiting for nature to heal on its own
