How long do I have to wait to know if I need surgery having deviated septum after a fractured nose?

I got kicked in the face so my nose got fractured, but thing is the bone got fractured vertically so that just caused inflammation, but my septum got deviated. My doctor said that I need to wait for the bone to heal so the inflammation goes away to find out how bad my breathing is because of the deviated septum. Stupid me forgot to ask how long do I have to wait. The septum is also inflamed by the way, he told the septum takes a long time to heal. Thank you.
