5th metatarsal fracture healing steps

hi I fractured my 5th metatarsal 4 weeks ago while running..i was in a fiberglass cast for 3 weeks nwb…..then cast removed and another x-ray ortho said shows healing but said it turned out my 4th metatarsal also fractured but it was an old fracture that was already healing…so he decided to give me an ugly thick soled shoe to wear and told me to gradually bear more and more weight every week for 6 weeks till I see him again…he said I should be at full weight bearing and wearing regular shoes by the time I see him…well I have been doing what he says but this week I added more weight and felt pretty good not even needing the crutches had lil pain more like just a weird feeling I guess cause I haven’t used my foot and leg for a month.. well I walked half the day without crutches….then at night suddenly my calf was throbbing….foot hurt a bit but just felt like it has always felt the pain was more in my calf it feels like a muscle tear or tightness..i assumed it was from not using my leg in so long…so today it still hurts I been stretching it and doing exercises but still hurts and my foot is a lil painful…so now im back on my crutches…ughhh when I feel like my healing is progressing now im being put a step back….I don’t know if I should try putting weight on it again or not?
