What will they do for a fractured scaphoid (wrist)?

I can't go to the Orthopedic until Thursday. The Doctor at the Hospital just gave me a Mueller splint with a metal rod. He said it will take 4 weeks or so to heal. It really doesn't hurt that bad, my work made me go....
Update: My boss is going to kill me. He has the power to get away with it to.
Update 2: @Lone Wolf, luckily it was my left hand. I'm right handed. :))
