Broke my distal tibia & got severe high ankle sprain. Cast for 6 months. How long will my ankle, hip, and back be in pain when I walk? :(

In brief: Longer recovery

Fracture may heal in 6-8 weeks but high ankle can take additional weeks.
Associated hip knee foot pain is compensatory so it may realistically take 3-6 momyjs
