There is no fix rule about the duration for which you are required to keep the cast after having your wrist wrapped into a cast.

There are a lot of factors that control the duration of the cast on your wrist and the prime among them is the how badly you have got your wrist hurt. Sometimes it happens that the wrist gets hurt in a very small area but it is fractured at more than one place. In that case certainly it will take a long time to get it healed properly and in consequence you have to keep your cast for long period. In some cases you will find that you are required to keep the cast for as long as three months. Even after that if the doctor feels that it is not healed properly he may replace it with bandage for another shorter duration.
