I am very conservative with fractures. I tell my patients if it hurts, then you should rest the part. If it goes away reasonably quickly, then it is probably ok to try again later. If the pain persists, then back off.
If your doctor feels you are ready to move on and you do not, I suggest you get another opinion.

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.
