The Bible doesn’t say exactly how long Job suffered.
Job 7:3 says, “So I have been allotted months of futility, and wearisome nights have been appointed to me.” and Job 29:2says, “Oh, that I were as in months past, as in the days when God watched over me.” Also Job 30:16 and Job 30:27 talks of the days of his affliction.

According to Job 2:13 his friends sat with him 7 days and 7 nights without speaking, but we don’t know how long he suffered before they came or how long after they left.
He doesn’t mention years, only days and months when he speaks of his afflictions so probably less than a year and more than a couple of months.
