Thanks for writing to us.
The recovery in such cases takes 8-10 weeks. After the pins are removed, the weight bearing is allowed. You need to have a protein and calcium rich diet for early recovery. Do take regular supplements and have rest till then.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
