Probably not: Your exact repair is not entirely clear from your message however in general only months after repair the bones is as strong or stronger than it was prior, unless you had abnormal healing. You should double check with your orthopedist to find out if they had any such concerns, usually you should also have physical therapy that would have stipulated weight bearing. Be well
