Heel bone

3 months ago I was operated - numerous heel bone fractures in the left foot (titanium plate was put to fix the heel), 2-part fractured heel bone in the right foot (fixed by screw)plus talus fracture and metetersal fracture.
2 weeks after operation I was recommemded to immobilize feet by wearing orthoses (day and night). The question is when I'm allowed to stand on my feet and try to walk with crutches?
I'm all in adrift - 3 doctors in Russia say 3 different opinions.

you should not walk until healing is noted.  usually 6-7 weeks.
