Take it easy, but don't be too worried about accidentally hurting yourself more. I had a Lisfranc 'fracture' a few months before and a few days after I got out of the chair and onto crutches, I fell down the stairs. The crutches were like a pole vault, so I couldn't even roll down the stairs, they launched me. Must have fallen 5-6 feet. I landed right on my feet (both were broken in half a dozen places.) It hurt, but when the doc checked it again a week later, he said I was recovering faster than he expected(!). I was afraid it would have knocked out/loose the pins, but apparently not so.
