In brief: Dr said what?

For as long as your doc tells you to.
Likely, your doc will base this decisio on the fact bone heals in 6-8 weeks and they likely will be taking x-rays during this time to determine if you need to be in there for longer or a shorter period.

In brief: Usually 4-8 weeks

Healing rates may vary on various factors.
In general bone may take 4-8 weeks to heal. You may be placed in a cast initially and then be asked to wear a rigid walking boot for the remainder of the healing process.
