Need to clarify: A proximal fibular fracture would be just below the knee, a distal fracture would be at or near the ankle. The tibia is the main weight-bearing bone of the lower leg so you may need a few more weeks at least. The partial weight-bearing may also be due to the ligament injuries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
