Learning to walk about after crutches.

I fractured a bone in my legg, down by my ankel.
It has been almost 5 weeks.
My doctor said I can put full weight on it now, and can walk without the crutches whenever I am ready.
I just can’t seem to take that first step.
I was wondering if there is suppose to be a little discomfort? Or should I wait until it doesn’t hurt at all?
I am not even sure how much it will hurt because I haven’t taken my first step yet, but when I sit down and press weight on it, it doesn’t hurt real bad, just feels kind of brused. But I was reading a comment on this site that said there is suppose to be discomfort at first, and was just wondering if this was true?
