In brief: Bone healing
Bone healing , the process begins immediately hematoma/soft callus/ hard callus ( see diagram) so in a way partial healing is present right away ! if you mean how long until there is enough structural integrity to sustain range of motion without loading, the short answer is 3-4 weeks but this is very dependent upon the fracture and how it has been treated .
Sorry to say but...Ask your doctor.
