In brief: Speeding bone healin
Getting bones to heal quickly is difficult and the person who figures this out will win a nobel prize, in the meantime, maintaining alignment of the fracture segments is the single most important factor in healing properly and quickly.
Some surgeons advocate the use of electrical bone stimulation. Growth factors are not routinely used for primary uncomplicated fractures.

In brief: It
Takes bone 6 to 8 weeks to heal.
You can try a bone stimulator. Ask your dr. If you are a candidate for one.

protect the foot. Either use crutches, camwalker or post op shoe. Make sure your vitamin D levels are normal.

Orally take vitamin d3 and nucleotides.
D3 helps heal bones and nucleotides helps repair nuclear cells and accelerates healing.
