I can't comment on hardware because my tib/fib spiral fracture was treated by a succession of casts but it did take nearly 9 months to heal. Seemed to get its act together all at once after about 8 months as they were on the verge of doing more when the X ray showed 95% healing. Good luck. I think we take longer to heal as we age unfortunately!
