  1. Thanks for posting your query to us at MediMetry.
    Since fibula, as you rightly said, is a majorly non weight bearing bone, hairline fractures don't need to be supported by cast. Healing takes around 2 months or so depending on several factors.

    But is there any swelling, any associated fractures, etc? Do let me know your age and if you are presently on any medications.

    Please remember RICE...rest, ice, cold, elevation. It will help you heal faster.

    Live healthy.
