Broken right wrist near thumb. Having severe pain, using wrist splint. Time taken to heal?

Hi, I broke my rt wrist and the brake was by my rt thumb . I was suppose to have my cast on for another 6 weeks but it was hurting me so much that the Dr. took it off early and gave me a wrist splint . My wrist and elbow won t bend straight and I still have as much pain as I did when I broke it. I try to work it in the hot tub , how long will it take ?? I am a terrible patient. Help PLEASE Thank You Teri
