I am lead to believe that a *minor break will take
6 months to become 99% strong. 12 months to become 100% strong.
A orthopaedic surgeon advised me of this.
With this in mind any activity that could damage the bone should be avoided for 6 months, such as mountain biking.
After talking to a physiotherapist I was advised that if physo goes well activities such as mountain biking could be done as early as 6 weeks as long as one does not fall.
So, 6 weeks moderate exercises is fine, no risks to be taken. 6 months not 100% healed but can resume more risky activities.
What would reasonable at 3,4 and 5 months.
I am thinking build it up to proper mountain biking from 3 to 6 and maybe a very minor fall at low speed would be ok at maybe 4 months.
Weight bearing exercises are also being done.
*minor break such as a humorous head break, no cracking of head clean break below the head.
-- Hypothetically, if someone was discharged from physio at 8 weeks due to doing so well and discharged from docs at about 10 weeks with the surgeon saying the patient is about 1 month ahead of where they need to be does this reduce the time? I would say not as bone still needs to bind although weight baring does help .
Any falling of is not planned, but as time moves by more technical trails would be ridden.
