Follow surg advice: There is no way to significantly speed up the process. Everyone heals at a different rate. The younger and healthier you are in general, the faster you will heal. Trying to shortcut the process will make things worse. Follow the advice of your treating surgeon.

Fracture: Navicular- carpel bone of wrist very important to thumb function which requires 3 of 8 carpel bones at its base. Follow dr. Orders, and let nature do its job at healing.Can't mess with natural course healing. Again this is very important bone. Pending type fracture which in this case required surgery makes it complicated. Maybe 6-12 weeks pending complications. Trust your dr. For details.
