I had socket fracture. I was told 6 wks non weight bearing for bone healing. Plus 6 wks for consideration of the joint. Additional 2 mos on crutches with weight bearing and I am allowed to walk without aid at home. The limit is 300 steps per day. Few. Going to the loo and back 10 times. My OS should be conservative but I accept his opinion. He told me earlier weight bearing should not lead to any complications, but for being on the safe side... Recovery after bone reconstruction seems to be quite long period. Hold on. Hard time.

Best for you.
