It depend what bone: Large bones like femur it take 8-16 weeks, and location of the fracture shaft or end of the bone, the shsft of the bone take longer than the end of the bone. Some bone like navicular bone also take longer time to heal.
Fracture: Most bones with good blood supply that are capable of healing will mend within 6-8 weeks. Not all fractures heal easily though, which is influenced by location, displacement, age, health/nutritional status, smoking, etc.
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
