I broke my tib/fib on 9 Dec 2017 and he let my go 25% weight bearing at about 3 months. Then I got more weight bearing as I went along and at 6 month point I still did not show healing. He wanted to take out top screws as I was doing well on full weight bearing and walking well. So he held off and at 10 month point he did CT and said we have to take out screws so I am waiting on surgery date now.
The issue is with you, what are your x rays showing as for start of healing? Some heal fast and others like me don't.
Lots of people think weight bearing and walking will promote healing but did not in my case.
