Heel Fracture

I fractured my right heel 12/20/09. My right leg is in a below the knee splint. Doc said that I can drive but no pressure on the heel. I use my toes on the injured foot to press the gas pedal. My calf muscle (have not used muscles in a month)has a burning sensation for an hour after driving then sore. Is this normal?

Thanks
