In brief: Depends
There are some fractures that are safe to weight bear. Others require a period of protected weight bearing.
Ask your orthopedist.

In brief: Ask your doctor
It can take 6+ weeks before your orthopedist allows you to walk without a cam walker or crutches/cane.
It depends on which bone was fractured, how extent it or the surgical repair was, and how you are healing.
