Broken bone

I have a cracked bone in my foot( the bone that runs along the second toe up) as well as several torn ligaments in the bottom of my foot.
I was misdiagnosed at first so I was just recently put into an aircast.Can you tell me in your opinion if being in an aircast is enough to heal a cracked bone and ligaments. My podiatrist is saying healing time is 3 weeks….as happy as that made me it does seem rather quick….your opinion would be greatly appreciated

    It is difficult to give an exact time frame based on insufficient information. It might take 3 weeks and it might take longer. There are many factors to consider. Compliance, degree of damage, and expectations. Most patients expect to hear that in 6 weeks they will be healed. Most doctors know that this is not 100% true. Yes you are better at 6 weeks but not 100%. Still it is allowed to pass. I do not ever promise something I can not be sure of.
