Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
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 :

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.
