Broke my tibia distally on Jan 22nd 2015 and finally came out of the sixth cast in July of that year. There was very slow healing for many weeks but, finally, a CT was done instead of Xray and that showed more healing had taken place than the Xray had implied.
I had no pain either and was in despair that my leg would ever heal. After a further three months in the aircast boot and loads of PT and patience I am now walking fine. Courage!!
