In brief: 10-12 weeks

To some degree healing time depends on where in the femur the fracture is, but 10-12 weeks is a good estimate.
Factors such as smoking and diabetes can slow the healing process.

In brief: 6 to 12 weeks

This depends on how bad the fracture is and if just needed a cast or an intramedullary nail.
