I'm no expert either but I'm 12 weeks NWB. I think it has to do with the location of the break. Mine was right below my knee cap which I'm told is the worst spot. My surgeon said that's how long it would take for bone to heal.
So sorry to hear about your fall. Must have been very painful. Hope the next 6 weeks fly by!
