Cardiologist 's  Response
It takes about six weeks to heal and another six weeks to consolidate.
If the alignment was proper, all will be well as before - with time and gradual rehabiliation
More time may be needed for rehabilitation - the muscles will be stiff and a bit wasted from prolonged immobilisation.
More time will be needed for weight lifting. The treating orthopaedic doctor will be the best and appropriate person to give proper advice - he has all the data...
Wishing you a speedy recovery
Good luck
