Suggest remedy for a non displaced fibula fracture

I turned my ankle about 3 weeks ago, I thought it was just a sprain so I just put a brace on it but it hasn t gotten any better so I went to urgent care today and had an x-ray. They said that it showed a non displaced fibula fracture, that looked like it was trying to heal. They referred me to an orthopedic doctor, what should I expect?
