Recovery is usually between 6 to 8weeks. But you might not be able to exercise or do strenuous activities for a little longer than that...Non weight bearing physiotherapy will help in an early recovery. The weight bearing will be allowed only when a callus formation is seen around the fracture site radiologically...Consult your orthopedic surgeon for fallow up they will do the needful.
