In brief: Maybe

Usually a ct is done to confirm that you have healed. Good luck.

In brief: ? and Yes

You will have the halo removed when the fracture has healed.
It's impossible for us to know exactly when that might be. I can tell you however, that you will need physical therapy once the halo is removed. Good luck!
