Six to twelve weeks: There are minor that require no surgery and only crutches. Up to major fractures that require extensive surgery and possibly even more than twelve weeks to recover.

Recovery time varies: Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, smoker or not, blood sugar control, surgery or not, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care. Discuss it with your doctor and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.
