Much depends upon th: E extent of injury, residual deformity, tissue factors , general health etc, but assumong good health and adequate alignment for a n injury that was treatable with expectant decent results it typically is a 3-4 month procress from injury to feeling more normal but subtle things can linger for months later. Despite returning to full activity long before that. Note this is a very general answer.
