Healing: After the casts are off

This question is unanswerable. Return to sports activity is determined by how well healed your bone is and how well you have rehabilitated, not when your cast comes off.

How well the bone has healed is to do with the fracture, your age and health, the treatment etc. I usually say one month after the fracture has consolidated for contact sports - to allow patients to get back into condition before competing. Swimming as soon as the bone is healed; exercise biking when your therapist thinks it would be useful. Jogging quite early. Distance running quite late. This is a question you should take up with the OS and PT who know your case.
