In brief: 8 weeks
The healing time depends on the location and severity of the fracture.
For non-displaced fractures of the radius near the wrist, it will often take 6-8 weeks for fractures to heal and then an additional 4 weeks for the bones to re-model and attain their maximal strength. Discuss your fracture with a hand surgeon to characterize the healing time.
