Hi,
I would like to know if fasting for osteochondritis dissecans will be ok to regrow tissue after broken ankle ?

There would very unlikely be any direct effect, pierrot. During fasting all healing that does take place, makes use of substances from your own body, instead of from what you eat (because you don't eat) so generally the healing is somewhat more "refined", makes less keloid (scar) and thus a more "neat" wound. But other than that, no real benefits.

but I read that fasting can make stem cells to recover damaged cartilage, true or not?

During fasting, dear Pierrot, most healthy cells "hibernate" or become inactive. That is how our ancestor survived famine. This would also hold for sten cells. Cancer cells are unable to hibernate, so doing chemotherapy or radiation on cancer patients, those who fast during such treatment get less side effects as this treatment target cells during division.
