Tibia Fracture

Good day, I injured myself with a very bad spiral tibia fracture 6 weeks ago. Was admitted to hospital for 9 dayes, had a external fixure placed ( plenty of tiny fractures) and now weight bearing instructions. In wheel chair.

At my 6 week follow up, no bone growth (no callus?) according to orthopedist. I have to stay wit ex fix for another 6 weeks.

Is this normal for tibia fractures, what possibility will there be for bone growth after another 6 weeks and what can I do / take to speed up bone growth. I am not a smoker! 50 years of age.

Thanks for assistance.
