Yes you can little bit pressure on your leg during exercise.
Hi minimum rest for 8 weeks. After that start partial weight bearing exercises after that full weight bearing walking and consult near qualified Physiotherapist he will give perfect assessment and treatment and home exercises.
Are your bone in plaster, then partial weight bearing with suppport.
