How long does it take for a broken tibia (shinbone) to heal?
I broke my tibia on Feb. 2nd. It was about 1 1/2 to 2 inches below my knee. The hospital inserted a steel rod and secured it with heavy screws in my knee and ankle (no cast). I can bear weight slightly, but I don't mess around on that count and don't bear weight on it

i've heard this, and it might sound absurb, but it works, eat lots of jello its going to help for the bone to heal. i know, i told you it sounded wierd, but it works! (cause jello has lots of Calcium, but you gotta it like like day and night, and for a long period of time) you don't have to believe me, but hey, it works, i heard it from a massage therapist. and the guy is veeeeeeeery experienced.

Just broke mine and am walking in ten days. It hurts, but you need to acclimate to that.

I crushed both of those bones in a motorcycle accident and was laid up for about two months with a cast. still hurts but I can walk pretty good. Yes I still ride. No I wasn't wearing a helmet. If I was maybe I would not have busted my leg up.

it takes 6-8 weeks for a bone to heal. In your case, since it is weight bearing bone, it may take longer to get to 100%.
Healing also depends on your age, smoker, overall health level, etc.


wastedgirl
do you have a frame on it, it all depends how big the fracture is and whether you need the intervention of mechano or just a plaster cast, if its just a cast thats hopefully a good thing

Figure about 4-6 weeks on average.

You're looking at about 6 to 8 weeks healing time for the initial bone repair; it may take quite a lot longer than that before it feels "normal." Ask your doctor about putting weight on it; some weight may be good to encourage it to heal, but don't overdo so as to prevent deformation. Even surgical screws can only stand so much!

It depends on the individual. If You are a fast heel-er 4 months.
If not try 6 months. Take it from a guy who fell off a bridge.
Just hang in there. A little patient, the time will pass and you
will be better off for waiting till it has heeled.
Hope this is helpful.
