Broken pinky toe: recovery period?

I broke my pinky toe before Labor Day weekend. My podiatrist xrayed it, splinted and buddy taped it. It's slowly been improving (no swelling, no more bruising after 5 weeks). He did another xray this weekend, and the break (non displaced) is beginning to fill in. I still cannot put full weight on my foot, and still have moderate pain if I'm not careful when moving around.
He told me recovery time is about 6 weeks, but I don't think I'll be fully healed by next Friday! How long do you think it will be before everything's healed and I'm pain-free? Thanks...
