Surgeon-dependant: The answer depends on several things, but most importantly the protocols of your particular surgeon. If he or she allows immediate full weight bearing, you should be walking well by 3-4 weeks. If, however, you are partial weight bearing for a time of 4-6 weeks, then expect another week or two until you are walking comfortably without a cane.
