I had a tib/fib fracture at the end of May last year:

Was on crutches for 8-12 weeks.
Could walk normally after 4-5 months.
Could do short sprints after 6 months.
Could jump on the foot after 8 months. Still working on the jumping, but my ankle is having issues, so cant create the pop with an ankle motion.

But I was able to snowboard now, starting in January. I can feel it in the leg after a day, but nothing major. Had an IM nail put into my tibia, btw.
