Broken 5th metatarsal

I broke my 5th metatarsal on my left foot about a week ago and the orthopedist I went to told me to use a crutch and wear an ace bandage and I should be healed in 12 weeks. I'm an impatient fellow and this seems like an awfully long time for that bone to heal, is there anything I can do that would speed up the process?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
