 Broken tibia and fibual/fixed with titanium rod + 3 nails

Hello,
On January 28, I broke my left lower leg just 3-4 inches below the ankle and had a surgery next day. Right after the surgery, following up next week doctor told me to put 40% of my body weight to the injured leg, and maybe sometimes I did put more. For one and a half month I was with the crutches and feeling maybe a little cocky I started using a cane putting most of my body weight to my right side. It felt really sore and painful following days and switched to the crutches again. On April 1st, doctor gave a walking boot and told me to use cane, crutches with it if necessary. Some times I don't even use the cane, and it feel fine. It just depends on the day... Last 2 3 days, without anything I can walk and really don't feel pain at all. Of course I am still scared to go outside and walk all day, but just walking around the house with small steps, it feels fine...

So, my question is if I still need the walking boot etc. Should I try to go around without it? Has anyone gone through a similar case and what was the recovery periods? My next appointment with the doctor is on May 15.

Thanks a lot
