How long does a tibia concussion take to heal? How much rest should I take? Can i walk?

 

Question: How long does a tibia concussion take to heal? How much rest should I take? Can i walk?

I had tripped and fallen down 6 steps to the landing 5 days back. There was swelling below the knee and in foot and the tibia bone was very painful midway. No fractures showed up in the xray. My doc said that it is a bone concussion and prescribed pain killer, seropeptidase and an antibiotic which I have been taking for the past 3 days. when I try to walk there is pain in the arch of my underfoot and the effect tibia is very painful with intermittent spasms of pain shooting to my toes and side of the foot from the ankle. I am on leave from work and at rest (by rest does it mean that I should be at bed rest with leg elevated?). I need some advice on when I can get mobile and go back to work and how long this injury will take to heal.

Thanks very much in advance for your advice.

Regards
Elizabeth
