broken right tibia

On Jan 6th I rolled my snowmobile over breaking my right tibia vertical from the middle of the knee. I have just started bending it but I have a problem with my ankle and foot still being swollen since the accident, and my foot always feels like its freezing unless im in bed and covered up. My question is how long does it take for that type of break to heal and why does my foot always feel cold?

The stabilizing ankle support features no-stretch nylon figure 8 straps which lock the calcaneus into place to help control abnormal eversion and inversion.
