In brief: Time

Some socket (acetabulum) fractures require surgery.
Some heal well on their own, but all need six to twelve weeks to heal.

In brief: Depends

It depends on the severity of the injury.
If its an undisplaced fx, then nonoperative treatment with pain meds & non.Weight bearing with crutches and range of motion exercises for upto 3 months. If displaced then surgical fixation is necessary to reduce risk of developing arthritis. Talk it with your orthopod, for specific plan of care for you.
