... And right now am also scared that nothing may show up in the mri that was done when I really hope something does. At least the surgeon saw it when it was really tender to touch which he said meant it hadn't been done long ago.

... hen you see your doctor you get very clear instructions on weight bearing. He might be putting you in the boot, but you still might be NWB. I had almost the same surgery and I'm NWB for 6 weeks.
