Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

It may be possible but if you are in pain, you really shouldn't be walking on it, you may slow down the healing process or further damage your foot. You shouldn't be limping. 

Many people use a special "boot" you get a the hospital that enables them to walk on a broken bone. See if you can get one of those., its what you should be in anyway, after a break/fracture. 

I hope you "heel" quickly!
