In brief: Wrist operation.
This depends on your health and the specific bone as well as the reduction achieved.
In optimal conditions this is 6-8 weeks but it can take significantly longer in the range of 14 weeks.

In brief: 2-3 months
Exercises can be started several days or several weeks after surgery.
For the most part, the wrist becomes functional at 2-3 months following surgery. However, it is common to experience persistent stiffness and mild discomfort up to 6-12 months.
