It depends on several factors. How old are you and were you totally healthy beforehand? I would say six weeks would be a fair guess. Also, which bone did you fracture,,or more than one? Eat more dark green vegetables and get a good quality bone food formula from the health food store. Skip the cheap calcium carbonate and get quality supplement. Patience though before going back to practice, you dont want to rebreak it prematurely.
