Yes, the non-weight bearing thing is the worst part of it all. I was very lucky this time and my surgeon said that he has found that patients do better when they begin partial weight bearing at 2 weeks! I'll admit that it made me nervous because his protocol seemed so different from the one I followed 7 years ago and different from everything else I read on this site, but the recovery was MUCH easier this time! I'm now 10 weeks out and I'm way ahead of where I was the last time.
Even though the non weight bearing part is so difficult, it's all worth it in the end! Good luck!
