Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
I would like to see the X-ray please. The Orthopaedician would have applied a cast in most situations. If it hurts, you may use limited weight bearing on that leg. The pain is due to the damaged bones on applying pressure. Take the pain killers as the Doctor has advised and the fracture should heal. Don't worry.
