weight bearing on a broken fibula with no surgery

Hi, I broke my fibula two months ago by falling hard on my left foot. At first I was just treated with a transact and was sent home with painkillers as they could not see a fracture.

I was only told a month later that I had a broken fibula and was then put in a cast. It's been 6 weeks now and I am still in a cast, did not require surgey and my O/S tells me that I can put FWB on it. I have tried to but it feels as if the bone has moved or something and it hurts alot. I have told him about this but he insists that I am not damaging anything at all.

So do I continue trying to walk on it or must I not. And how much longer do I have to be in this cast?
