fibula fracture

I WAS IN A CAR ACCIDENT AND HAVE A SMALL FRACTURE ON MY FIBULA. THE EMERGENCY ROOM DOCTOR SAID IT SHOULD HEAL BY ITSELF. I AM IN A KNEEBRACE AND I FEEL BETTER ALREADY. THE ACCIDENT WAS FOUR DAYS AGO. WHAT ELSE SHOULD I DO TO HELP ME GET BACK TO WORK?

I have a spiral fracture of my left fib. I saw the doc 3 days later and he YANKED and poked the area asking "dose this hurt?''. I said yes to all and he left for 1 min and told me no casting was needed and it dose not  hurt bad to start stepping down on it. it hurts so bad now and my mom is debating getting a second opinion.
