How long does it take for a tibia feature to heal and when do I start walking on the leg.

The answer to your question, anonymous, it that it varies as recovery time depends on the type of fracture and the extent. Fractures of the tibia generally take four to six months to heal and more extreme cases will take even longer. General health also impacts the recovery period. It would be best to discuss this with your health care provider who can also guide you on when you can walk again, how much pressure to use and how to protect yourself from further injury as you recover. Good luck! Pat
