I'm sorry to hear about your injury. I had complete fracture for both my tibia and fibula last February 7, 2019 and opted for non-surgery-closed reduction only. I had the same cast as yours, a full-leg temporary cast for two- weeks to allow swelling to subside. After 2 weeks, the cast was changed to toe-to-thigh fiber glass cast. It was very challenging especially when your try move around. I started to move non-weight bearing for 4 weeks with crutches. You'll find ways maneuvering safely with little steps. Just be patient in learning to move again. You need to accept fully that you need help from others from time to time, this will help you feel better that you need assistance and that you'll be dependent from other for a certain period of time. But this not take long, just be patient. When my full-leg cast was removed and changed to toe-to-knee cast. This cast allowed me to move better. While i'm still in cast, I did a lot exercises for my upper body, abdominal and legs. These are all assisted and supervised by a physical therapist to ensure safety and that I can carry myself better when using crutches. I also trained myself for gait and walk using the crutches so I can shift weight swiftly and not to tire myself easily.
Currently, I'm working towards 75% weight bearing from 50%. Just allow time to be your best medicine. Patience is very important.
I'm praying for your fast recovery.
