In brief: 6-8 weeks
You are probably looking 6-8 wks of cast after the procedure.
.Depending how good you heal/feel. Often an xray is done to assure proper healing/alignment etc...Before the cast is removed. Your surgeon will be the best person at estimating how much time is needed because he/she knew what was done to you and for you... Good luck.

In brief: CASTING
It depends if bone graft is used.
I'll go anywhere from 8-12 weeks.
