Broken pinky toe

My baby toe is broken. According to the x-rays, it was broken on the diagonal. I've been out of work for 3 1/2 weeks now and it STILL hurts when I walk. My Dr. said it could take up to 5-6 weeks to heal. I'm a flight attendant, so I work on my feet in a pressurized cabin for hours on end. I'm nervous about going back to work too soon. I don't want to break it again. How do you know when it's completely healed?

Also, is it safe to ride a stationary bike? I can push with my heel without pain. I don't want to make it worse.

The Silipos® Soft Sock™ is a two-layer sock carefully designed with a proprietary gel pad molded in between the two fabric layers at the sole to absorb and reduce friction, abrasion, shear forces, and moisture away from the foot. It is recommended for the diabetic, rheumatoid or insensitive foot.
