cant walk and on holiday!

I have had a recent bike accident in Bolivia, where I rolled down a cliff. My foot has been swollen for 4 weeks but nothing is fractured- Ive had 2 xrays. 2 weeks ago a traumatologist suggested putting on a hard cast. At this time I had dark bruising on the medial arch near the ankle end of the foot and it was very painful to put pressure on the toe or heel. I am on crutches and want to know if it is best not to put any pressure on foot or if it is wise to start using toe for walking to help muscle strength (and combat atrophy). I am desperate for this to heal as quickly as possible as I have not been able to walk for 4.5 weeks now. Any advise would be appreciated (especially from one who speaks english). And most commonly, with the little info I have given can you give me a ball park figure on when it will be better. THankyou for your time.

Tuli's Double-Ribbed Pro heel cups are the most advancesd shock absorbing heel cups available today. The primary force of the heel strike is absorbed by the larger and higher waffle pattern while the lower and denser waffle pattern absorbs the high pressure and final force spike of heel strike. Perfect for sports activities.
