Compressed side of discs, how long to heal?

So I fell off a 20 feet ladder to a sloppy cemented ground. The bottom of my spine hit the ground first but not head on, it slid. I had 1 fractured vertebrae which has partly healed already. I also had some of my internal organs swelling.

The problem I have now are the discs at my upper back. It's fully compressed on its front like in the attached image below. The tips of my two fingers are still mildly numb although not as numb as in the first day.

Question: How long could this type of injury heal? I don't feel any pain though. Just the mild numbing of the tips of my two left fingers.
