Please follow your doc's advice as he's right. For moving around, you can always use an elbow crutch as there's no contraindication to walking with a fracture lest you put weight on it. So kindly avoid bearing weight over you affected foot. after walking for long periods you'll develop swelling of your toes which would subside if you elevate it overnight on a pillow. Analgesics will take care of your pain.
