My injury was different from yours (ankle fracture plus compound fracture of tibia/fibula), and it took me just less than 5 weeks from PWB to walking on my own two feet without cane or crutch. I expect you will be on your feet in a shorter time. But don't overdo it. Just follow what your OS and physical therapist tell you what to do.

The funny thing that I noticed (after being non-weight bearing on my leg for 12+ weeks) was that I worried I would "forget" how to walk -- but it all came along okay after all.
