In brief: Right away!
If your doctor has confirmed that your fracture has healed, you can start playing again.
Start slow and gradually build up to your pre-injury playing frequency!

In brief: As pain permits
Returning to light activities, such as piano, as soon as xrays demonstrate a healed fracture, is encouraged.
Sometimes such activities can even be started before the fracture is entirely healed -.
