In brief: In an airplane?

I'm assuming you're planning to be a passenger in an airplane? You won't feel like traveling for 1-2 weeks at a minimum. Even then you may have considerable discomfort and won't want to move luggage.
4 weeks is more reasonable. If you're the pilot, you must be off all pain medicine - 4-8 weeks at least.
