In brief: Varies

Varies somewhat based upon the fracture, but most heal by about 12 weeks.

In brief: Fracture healing

Fractures typically take 6-8 weeks to heal at the earliest and may take longer. The best you can do is follow your surgeon's advice and if you do not take a multivitamin with calcium and vitamin d, you may want to consider this to help your bone get all the nutrition it needs to heal properly and as quickly as possible.
