broken ankle

hi, i fractured my ankle and had it put in a cast on 5th April and i was told i would be in it for six weeks. However, being a young, healthy 18 year old i believed it would take less time. And today i discoved that i can put more-or-less all my weight on the cast (less than 2 weeks later). Is this a sign that it might be healing much quicker than expected? Is there a support i could wear with a shoe that would enable me to walk?
