Unhappy Shattered Heel... have questions...

I was in a car accident 6/28/09 where I broke my leg and shattered my heel. It has been 8 1/2 weeks since the accident date and my surgery date. I go back to the doctor next week. Still cannot put any weight on it yet. Am hoping to be able to after my next appointment. I just had a few questions for those of you who have had this injury already.

Do you think the doctor will let me start putting weight on it next week?
Will it hurt when I start?
How long until I'll be able to drive again?

I am a 21 yr old female with a 17 month old daughter... I want to be able to carry her around again... and take her places. I don't want to rely on everyone to take us places anymore. How much longer until I can be independent again? Thank you for any responses. I really do appreciate them.
