If fracture has united (which it should if the plate was removed) then
careful mobilisation full weight bearing. Bone will gain full strength once
screw holes are filled with bone.

Dear sender
After implant removal need to be care full as bon vis not strong and may lead to some problem. The primary surgeon should have provided you the necessary information.

screw holes makes bone weak. Its depend on quality of ur bone. U can walk
on other leg with crutches or walker even right now. Partial weight bearing
can be started after 2 weeks ( again depending upon quality of bone) full
after 6 weeks.
