Broken ankle recovery

Hi All, I broke my fibula on July 6, 2016 – it’s a spiral fracture of the tibula with some torn ligaments to boot. I had surgery on July 15th – 2 mteal screws placed in ankle. After having plaster cast on for 10 days – I went back to the doctor and he said I must keep the cast on until August 29th – which will be about 6.5 weeks total.I’m a very active person and want to do everything I possibly can to rehab quickly. Should I look into getting the plaster cast off sooner and go with fiberglass or an air cast to start physio? Or am I getting too anxious? I’ve been doing some ankle movements (drawing the alphabet with my big toe) to try and strengthen the ankle.Should I seek a second opinion from another doctor. Anyone have similar experiences?thanks!
