8 to 12 weeks: A standard fractured bone that is in place without major displacement takes 8 to 12 weeks to heal in a healthy person with proper immobilization. Smoking, diabetes, osteoporosis, and other chronic conditions can prolong or delay this healing. Premature mobilization or weight bearing on the extremity could also cause delayed or non healing.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes.: In most fibular fractures, healing should occur in abut 6 weeks. If the fracture is displaced a significant to a significant degree, then surgery may be indicated.

What r the symptoms of a slightly broken fibula. I got x-rays and I just want to know the symptoms?
No such thing: It's either broken or not. You may have sprained your ankle which presents with pain, swelling on outside part of your ankle. Typically pain is below tip of bone. If your pain persist despite two weeks of treatment (splint:boot and crutches) you should followup with your orthopedist. May consider MRI to rule out an occult fracture.
