foot and ankle pain

I am 5 weeks out from a fall that caused a avulsion fracture in my foot (cuboid). Non weight bearing 1 wk,3 wks walking boot and now walk with a bit of a limp. I have pretty significant pain laterally along ankle and some medial foot. Md did not rec. PT, but have been doing some things that I found online. Should I still have this lateral pain 5wks out? I would like to get back to running, able to do elliptical 20 minutes daily. Any suggestions?

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
