Saw my surgeon Friday and got a bit of a reprieve from the "no weight bearing for 3 months" (it'd been 7 weeks).  I'm now allowed up to 40% of full weight bearing (FWB), depending on what I can tolerate (I'm waiting on outpatient PT this week to see if they've a better way to measure 40%, than my guessing with a bathroom scale).  The goal now is to get to FWB with a cane, perhaps in 6 weeks.

Of course I overdid it Friday after seeing the doc (walked a lot with walker but nowhere near 40% weight - retraining motion more than strength) and my leg let me know it wasn't happy that night.  So I cooled it yesterday and was OK by evening.  For now the hurdles seem to be stiffness (still swollen) and atrophy more so than pain from the break.  Fingers crossed.
