Fractured tibia healing time
On March 4th, 2019 I had a motorbike accident and my right tibia was broken (comminuted fractured). An ORIF surgery was performed after two days and they gave me a full leg cast on the 20th. After six weeks my plaster was removed and observing the x-ray my doctor ordered to follow up after another six weeks and applied a full plaster again. As far as I have read, the recovery time is 6-8 weeks in such cases. I don't mind the prolonged period as long as my leg is completely healed but my concern is will I fully recover or not. Will I be able to ride my bike again? When can my injured leg bear weight? There are no more pain or swelling in my leg except for the claustrophobic plaster. I am attaching my x-rays for your convenience.

Good fixation. However believe your surgeon and you will recover well. Please do not go around doctors shopping like this. This is how third parties like internet programmes make unethical money. Stay grounded and you will do fabulous.
