In brief: 8 weeks

In general, wrist fractures take about 6-8 weeks to heal.
Most patients are allowed to resume full unrestricted activity after 3 months. However, not all wrist fractures are the same. More severe ones will take longer to heal, and patients with other medical conditions or who have poor bone density, may take longer as well.

In brief: 6 weeks

Most fractures heal in about 6 weeks.
Some may take longer based on your calcium and vitamin d levels, severity of the fracture, and motion at the fracture.
