Ankle: Bimalleolar Fracture

I received a pin and plate w/ 6 screws in my ankle. The cast is off now and am using a walking cast. Very liitle pain, but swelling still persists. It has been 10 weeks since the surgery and 4 weeks in this walking cast. My question is: How long until I am walking fairly normal again? What can I do to speed/assist this along?
Thanks.
