In brief: Sore
Depending on the fracture you may need an open reduction and internal fixation vs closed reduction and percutaneous pinning.
The more muscle dissection, the more pain. With both procedures, weight bearing will be uncomfortable. It takes about 12 weeks for the fracture to heal, so expect to have limited mobility for about 3 months.
