Sprained left ankle

sprained my ankle 2 weeks back,as i slipped down from the stairs. there is no fracture not even a hairline. have been doing RICE for the first week, the doctor then told me to switch to heat.like soaking the foot in hot water and stuff. the movement is still limited, i can dorsiflex and plantarflex but no inversion or eversion. The doc asked to start weightbearing.I am on crutches and do put some weight on the foot but usually with crutches. Now im a doctor myself and have a lot to do,so i need to get back to my routine.I wated to ask you, its been 2 weeks now, my ankle is still alittle bit unstable, when could i put all the weight on it? climb stairs? and drive? do u think i should rest for another week? till the collagen starts getting laid down. I need your advice doc. thanks
