In brief: It Depends

It depends on what bone or bones in the foot are broken.
But generally it takes 6-8 weeks for bone to heal. Treatments can range from a walking boot to a cast with crutches depending on the location and severity of the fracture.

In brief: 6-8 weeks...

Hello, The stages of bone healing typically take 6-8 weeks to heal given that the environment is correct, in terms of no other comorbidities, certain medications may interfere, smoking status, offloading status all play a role in the healing.
