Hi Im on my 3rd week of having leg cast, my tibia was injured because of an accident and the doctor told me that it should be better after 4wks time after I had my leg cast. But i can still feel some pain on my legs, is this normal? And what is the average time for a leg injury to be okay? Hope someone can help me. I'm 19yrs old

I think that's pretty normal for a fracture. I broke my foot just under five weeks ago and it still twinges from time to time even though I haven't been walking on it. Even if the bones are healing all the muscles and tendons will probably be stiffening up and cramping from lack of movement, which can make your leg ache.
Broken bones usually take about 6-8 weeks to heal, though it's sometimes less for minor fractures and more if there's extra complications.
In my opinion, leg pain takes some time to get normal. Do some massage and take rest.
