In brief: 6 wks w/ proper care
Most fractures take approximately 6 weeks to heal assuming proper care.
Although a non-weight bearing bone, fibula fractures can be painful with certain motions; be sure to get it properly evaluated and treated. See your doctor (family doctor, internist or orthopedic surgeon) for best results.
