In brief: Depends

It would be good to know which bone was fractured.
In general it takes 6-8 weeks to heal depending on treatment.

In brief: 6-8 weeks

It takes time for the fracture to heal and 6-8 weeks is a reasonable estimate some take longer based on age, nutritional status and type and location of the fracture.
