The person best to answer you questions are the doctor who repaired the fracture as he would know better what type of fracture it was and how badly it was fractured. i'm sure that you can do upper body exercise at the moment where you don't put any strain on the leg. If you can, consult a bio-kineticist to help you with a specifically designed exercise program. Also make sure you follow a healthy diet rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals which are needed to speed up the healing. For the moment you should stay away from dumbbells- it may just fall on that injured leg!
