how may non weight bearing after second microfracture

Hi everyone.

I am confused with regards to the number of week which you should not put any weight on your feet after ankle microfracture.

i saw 4 doctors and they all say different things
1. non weight bearing for 2 weeks then full weight bearing
2. non weight bearing for 2 weeks, then partial weight bearing for sometime
3. non weight bearing 4 weeks then physio after 6 weeks

this will be my second microfracture. after first one I was non weight bearing for 6 weeks and got very stiff. I wasn't getting any pain when waking after around a year.. my defect is still there and its around 1 cm big.

I know that the doctors differ on how they go about with it but I have to get it right this time!
Also one is suggesting tightening the ligaments but I ma not chronically unstable- the ligaments are loose but I do not fell over. I am totally lost and don't know what to do now..

any advise?
thanks
pat
