Fracture both bones leg 5weeks now Put the xray in the view box and take photographs Present images are distorted due to bend film held in hands Usually we wait till 6 weeks before planning further So you can repeat the xray and post the case

PTB cast for Six to Eight weeks. If calus formation is there and patient is able walk than PTB brace with foot plat will be helpful.

Thank you doctor
