Ultrasound tech. I just had an external fixator on wrist. Typical time off work? Still in a lot of pain.

Depends on your work. most of the time, the ex-fix is on 3-4 weeks until things stabilize, then cast placed. If your work does not require affected hand use (?walmart greeter?) then back to work is likely within a few days of ex fix placement. If you are in construction or a professional musician, may need 4 - 6 months off! .
