In brief: Usually 4-6 weeks

Arm fractures usually heal in 4-6 weeks depending on the extent of fracture, type of fractuere and which arm bone or bones are affected.
All things equal you should expect 4-6 weeks but your orthopedist may think differently based on follow up exam, x-rays and your individual case study. Follow up and keep open dialog with your doctor.
