Is it common to spend 6 months in a walking boot after a compound fracture?

Curious about this. My son was in a school bus crash in May. He had a compound fracture to the tibia and lost a chuck of bone, had nails put in. He was in a cast for a couple of months and now he is in a walking boot since July. Doctor said today he'll be in this boot another 3 to 4 months most likely and that seems like a long time to me? He's kind of bummed about it, but he's also used to it lol - we just were hoping for a shorter recovery.
