In brief: Depends

This would depend on which three fingers were amputated and on whether the amputation was in the dominant hand.
If the thumb is still present it would beach easier to learn to use the hand and therapy is usually shorter. The time will depend primarily on the type of activities that the person needs to re-learn to do with less fingers.

In brief: 3 months minimum

Most patients with replanted fingers require therapy for at least 3 months, and often 4-6 months to regain maximal mobility.
Even then, many patients will need additional procedures, that will require further therapy.
