Question fractured fibula - partial and full weight bearing

Hi there

Please can someone explain to me exactly what partial and full weight bearing actually means. I have a fracturd fibula with pot on. Luckily not operation and have had pot on tow weeks. No weight on foot at present then next Thursday I can move to 2 weeks of partial weight bearing and then two weeks of full weight bearing.

What do each mean??

Partial - how much weight can I put on my fractured leg? Are there any exercises I could do? Can I go out with crutches and my special pot shoe?

Full weight - does this mean I don't need to use my crutches? Do i just use my shoe that they gave me? I know it sounds daft but do I try and walk normally?

Any information/hints or tips would be much appreciated.
