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!
