In brief: 6-8 weeks

While the fracture usually heals in 6-8 weeks patients often experience symptoms related to the soft tissue injury that occurred at the time of the injury and the soft tissue trauma caused by the surgery for weeks or months after this.

In brief: 6-12 weeks

Fractures usually heal within 6-8 weeks, especially if surgery is undertaken.
Healing at 6 weeks is different from obtaining full functional recovery. This may take over 3 months of continuous improvement.
