Thank you for your query at
I have read your question with diligence.
You should not worry at present.Sometimes these long bone may take about a year to unite.In your case it was a fracture of upper third of tibia which is liable to displace.You should wait for 2-3 months more for results.
Hope this will help you,

Patient replied :

thank you for the answer sir. Dr told me to came after 3 months. he told me for 100% weight bearing but take a support always. Sir can i Use a cane for walking and go outside for walking...and what about the femur fracture?

It will be better for you to use walker.With help of this there is partial weight bearing on your limb.The femur will also get united in next 3 months.
With best wishes.
