2 year old won't walk on leg after recently recovering from a fracture

Our daughter recently fractured her left leg and was in plaster for 5 weeks. 6 days ago she had the plaster removed. x-rays were taken before the plaster was removed and the doctor was unable to detect the fracture. since then she is unable to walk. every time we try to get her to walk on it, or to even just stand on it, she says that it really hurts. we are certain that it is psychological because she is able to crawl on it properly and bend and move it, and will also allow me to press my palm firmly against the base of the foot without saying it hurts. Does anyone have any advice as to how to convince her that her leg is better and that she is able to walk? we are thinking of taking her to the doctors in two days time for another x-ray just in case she really is pain - but this is more for peace of mind than because we really think it is necessary. thank you.

You definitely should return to the doctor. It may well be that the fracture has healed, but let the doctor determine this. You won't be able to 'convince' your daughter - she will be fine over time (assuming all is well from a strictly medical perspective). Just carry on and don't pay the situation any unusual degree of attention.
