How Long does a Broken Fibula Take to Heal?

I am 16 years old, im a male, and my health conditions are good. I broke my bone below the knee on a Friday of March 29th in 2013. I got a cast on a Tuesday on the 2nd of 2013 or Monday of the1st. i broke only one bone in my leg. I wanna know how long it will take for that one bone to heal.

Shouldn't your doctor have told you?

Well orthopedists went to college specifically to do this sort of thing, so if he says 6-8 weeks, then it's 6-8 weeks. when you get the cast off, give it another week or so so you can be sure. After those few weeks, your bone actually heals stronger than it is supposed to, then the extra bone particles slowly go away and everything will be normal.

About six weeks or a bit more.
