Fx Distal fibula

How long would it take to recover from an Acute distal fx fibula? I rec'd mine on 7-16-04. I've been instructed to use no-weight bearing for 7 days than advance as tolerate follow up in 2 weeks with another xray to see what it looks like at that time.
I have to a leg brace/immbolizer for approx 6weeks.
Curious? I have never had a broken bone before and I'm 38 yrs old.
