There is formation of bridging callus Acceptable for 4weeks Keep pop for total 6weeks After that remove pop and start partial weight bearing with Walker Ankle,knee exercises After another month repeat xrays The fractured area is only important for muscle attachments;not for weight bearing

It's only 4 weeks, callus formation is evident in x-ray. The fractured ends are in proper position. So no need to worry. Avoid weight bearing and check the integrity of POP. Nutritional supplementation such as calcium should be taken in proper amount.
Thank you doctor

if swallowing then elevation leg and crepe bandage application avoid weight bearing affected side if more pain at weight bearing time fibula role only 20% while tibia 80% average time to heal 8 to 10 weeks so at that time given calcium supplements food help to heal fast
Whats the complain of the patient?.Fibula fracture at that level is insignificant.Give some calcium and vitamin D3 supplements. Treat the patient,not the x ray
