I recently broke my fibula. I had a splint put on in er. Went to ortho today no cast or splint and I'm able to put weight on it and walk. Is this ok?

It is definitely an encouraging sign. However you should consult your orthopaedic surgeon to get the area examined and proceed with further weight bearing accordingly
