In brief: As long

As incision is healed and sutures are out.
Likely 2 weeks or so.

In brief: Bone healed already

Hard ware was removed as the bone healed to optimal level , now only skin and subcutaneous tissue has to heal , will take short couple of wks , speak to your surgeon when to resume full activity
