In brief: Varies on healing

Recommendations depend on close follow up and repeated x-rays to assure satisfactory bone healing and wrist stability.

In brief: Totally depends

It totally depends on what bone was broken, how severely, and what type of work you do.
A small fracture of the bone at the tip of your finger will heal faster, and with minimal downtime for an office worker, versus a displaced fracture on the back of your hand if you work construction. The best advice is to see your physician to determine if you need to be seen by a surgeon.
