Foot Fracture: A foot fracture takes roughly 2 months to have radiographic appearance of healing, but takes longer to fully heal. Swelling is normal whenever there is a fracture or injury and can take several months to a year for complete recovery. You are doing everything right, but patience is the best ally in this recovery. Hope this helps!

Weeks to months: Depending on your circulation, how much you weigh, alcohol intake, salt if you have heart disease, hypertension if you are keeping it elevated the foot tend to swell more and longer because od distance of heat and gravity.
