Brief Answer:
Avoid weight bearing or a knee rotation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the attached X-rays. The internal fixation has been done but the healing is yet not so much so as you can bear a weight on the leg. It is best to do only a non weight bearing physiotherapy for another 4 weeks. It is best to avoid knee rotation also for another few weeks.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
