In brief: Distal fib fracture

Varies depending on age, health, smoking status, nutrition, displacement, etc.
Average person the answer is about 6 wks, but then additional maturation of the fracture occurs with soft tissue healing and muscle strengthening.

In brief: Depends

Depends how it is treated, surgical or non-surgical.
Average 8-12 weeks and then physical therapy.
