In brief: Healing
Fracture starts healing.

In brief: Talk to your Surgeon
This can vary depending on the exact nature of the surgery - whether this a tendon advancement, removal of excess bone, fracture repair of fusion.
Regardless, you should expect a period of several weeks of non-weightbearing. You should absolutely have a discussion with your surgeon preoperatively to ensure that all of your questions have been answered.
