Fracture healing: On average, non-displaced fractures take about 12 weeks to heal, assuming you do not have any medical condition that would prolong healing, the fracture remains non-displaced, and you are following proper instructions for immobilization. Age may prolong healing - and at times the discomfort may persist beyond the time that the X-ray shows the fracture to be fully healed.

6 weeks.: About 6-8 weeks. You should have it xrayed to assure that it is healing.
