    Start immediately. If it breaks again, it was too soon.

    sounds like a question for your doctor who has seen your x rays, knows how long it takes for things to heal and went to a bunch of school to answer shit like this

    bone takes approximately 8 weeks to heal completely

    you're good to go unless dr. says otherwise
    weight allows bone to heal so lifting right now wouldn't be a bad idea, but in moderation of course
