In brief: 2 months

2 months is the average for clinical healing, but radiographic healing can take as long as 3-4 months in some bones.
Also depends on complexity of fracture. Was it open or closed? Did it require surgery or casting? Was it displaced? These are the questions that when answered can help determine length of time to heal.
