I am not sure about the time line. But I am in the same boat as you. Went in with a "Sprain" over 1 year ago and I am still not walking. 1 year of cast after cast, a surgery and many doctor appointments later and I am no more closer to doing my regular job than I was the day after the injury. I have returned to work modified duty and get to sit at a desk all day. I have to hobble on crutches at work and it is a real pain in the rearend. I do know that W/C can get you back to work before it is properly healed, if there is some light duty stuff you can be doing. I figure it this way. W/C wages were peanuts compared to what I make an hour shuffling papers and it gets me out of the house. If your only in to this thing 6 or so weeks, heck you have only just begun.
