1 doctor agrees
In brief: It depends.
Tibial shaft fractures heal slowly, but even after the fracture heals it can take many months for a patient to get back to their baseline activity.
Return to full function depends on healing which in turn depends on many factors: how healthy is the patient, smoker?, was the injury high-energy or low?, was it an open fracture?, age of the patient, motivation of the patient, etc.
