In brief: Weeks to months
A broken ankle can take a variable amount of time to heal.
There are a number if things that factor into how long it will take. One of the most important is what type of ankle fracture you have.

Orthopedic Surgery
In brief: 6-8 weeks
While the bone usually heals in 6-8 weeks patients often continue to have symptoms beyond that time.
This is due to the soft tissue injury that also occurred at the time of the fracture.
