fractured ankle

Hi Doc! My husband fractured his ankle last week Friday. His foot is in a cast &  he is walking with crutches. How long does he have to wear the cast? How long will it take to heal? He is very impatient &  irritable with his situation. Advice please :)

Unfortunately, he will have to be patient for at least 8 weeks. The fracture will heal optimally if his ankle remains immobilised for at least 8 weeks.
