Hello, and welcome to 'Ask A Doctor'

Thanks for posting your query.

I have gone throught your query and understand your concern. Usually avulsion fractures take around 3 to 12 weeks time to heal. Recovery time post surgery will be around 2 to 4 weeks minimum which varies from patient to patient.

I hope this helps. Please feel free to discuss further if any.
