In brief: Several months

With a dislocation it will take a long time for the joint to heal as you tore many of the tendons.
It will take several months before you can walk unassisted.

In brief: Varies

The specific nature of the injury and the patients themselves varies, but "normally" you would be walking on it at this point.
Discuss the specifics of your case with your doctor.

In brief: Variable

You should likely be walking now at least in a cam walker. walking without any additional aide could be another 4 to 6 weeks.
Depends also if there was associated fracture. I would ask about some physical therapy.

In brief: 6-8 weeks.

Assuming your doctor is allowing you to put weight on it, it could be 6-8 weeks, before you're walking independently.
