Broken Tib, Fib, Femur, heel and ankle

My husband had a nasty motorbike accident and had comminuted fractures to tib/fib (open), femur, heel and ankle. He has a rod in femur and plates screws in lower leg. He is 7 weeks post op. Xrays show bone healing in femur but not lower leg. He is still in a considerable amount of pain. We were told about a year off work (he is in a manual job), but consultant this time was more vague. Would a year be expected for this time of significant injury? Also despite no healing, cast was removed and boot applied but strict NWB to continue, is that usual?
