hello mam..
welcome to healthcaremagic..

wel in your case the nondiplaced fracture of tibia wil heal in next 3 weeks but to it wil take 7 to 10 more days for the complete weightbearing.. contusion on femoral condyle is mild one so it wil heal in 14 days , and subluxation of patella too wil heal in 14 days, so major problem is with tibial fracture whic wil take more time as u seem to be a lady may be in mid 30s or 40s,
so dont worry it wil take time to heal on itself , to make sure it heals faster u should take calcium tablets, rest, immobilisation as much as possible, vitamin c containing items like citrus fruits, tomato, etc..
i hope this solves ur query..
i wish u a speedy recovery...
thank you..
