Angela, take it slowly at the moment. Keep your leg elevated as much as possible- the circulation won't return to normal for quite a while. The pain is probably soft tissues 9muscles, tendons, ligaments) protesting because they're expected to work when they've been immobilised for nearly six weeks.
Having no flexibility is normal at this stage. Your physiotherapist should start mobilising the joint and give you exercises to do and guide you.
I had a fibular fracture as well and I went from partial weight bearing in the boot to fully weight bearing not in the boot over a period of about three weeks - you're not expected to start walking on it fully tomorrow!
Start by using your walker or the kitchen counter or something else solid to hold onto with both hands, place your bad foot on the floor. Get used to the feeling. When you are ready, slightly raise the heel on your good foot - that will put some more weight through your bad foot. Repeat up to 10 times, for maybe a second or so at a time (we call it the "slow dance"). Repeat a few times during the day. This is TOTALLY UNDER YOUR CONTROL and you can stop at any time. It's a great way to gradually put more weight on the leg in a controlled manner. Meanwhile keep using the crutches. And keep the leg elevated when you're not up and moving.
