When Is Broken Foot Fully Healed with a Disability?

Patient : I have Spina Bifida, I am high-functioning though because I can walk with a cane and no braces. Recently though I fracture my cuboid bone when I fell about 2 and half months ago. I used a wheelchair while my foot was in a cast. They x-rayed my foot about 2 weeks ago and said it was healed. Also, when I first fractured my foot they discovered I had "thin bones" in my feet. Anyways, now that I am out of the cast I have started exercising using a treadmill and elliptical rider, slowly btw- doing 10 minutes on each and I am experiencing a lot of swelling in the area where the fracture was and into my ankle as well as a dull ache in the foot. I am hoping I didn't re-fracture it!
