Default Broken Fibula/Tibia - When can I ride??

Ok, second season in a row I have managed to break myself. Broke my fibula and tibia on Monday (riding), having surgery next Tuesday. I realise it depends on the surgeon, how I respond, etc, but anyone had a similar experience and any idea when I can ride again? I am an Aussie here until 12th March. If I can ride after 8 weeks it is worth me staying, if not there is not much point if I can't ride... any feedback, etc would be much appreciated.

I broke my Radius & Ulna in the park in our season, requiring surgery, and was back out riding after 7 weeks. I realise ankle could be more as it is weight bearing. I am booze free, taking multi vitamin, fish oil, magnesium, calcium. Eating incredibly well and I am determined so will be dedicated to any physio/rehab required.

I really wanna ride some more here at Winter Park, but I am also supposed to be doing a month long road/snow trip in Cali in April too....

So frustrated!!
