Any fractured foot recovery advice? ?

I fractured my foot 2 weeks ago and I really want to recover ASAP as it’s christmas soon and I have lots of events I don’t want to miss! I am aware it takes 6 weeks as standard but I’ve heard you can usually partake in normal activity before the 6 weeks. 

1. If you have fractured your foot how long until you were back to ‘normal’ walking without any extra exercise? 

2. Any tips on anything extra I can be doing at home? (Obviously resting and keeping it elevated as much as possible in the day and always is at night)

    what bone? that is important. all bones take 6 weeks to heal (or more)--you cant speed that up. But some of the lesser weight bearing bones hurt less and less at about 3 weeks. How mobile you will be depends almost entirely on you, the break, and how bad the damage.

    6 weeks in a walking boot and crutches.

    There is no instant cure.

    Stay in bed. Eat food.
