Injury: Unfortunately your injury hasn't healed enough for you to get back to moving heavy objects,etc. Treatment is resting with foot elevated, applying cold applications for 20 minutes several times a day and taking anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen or naproxen, if you can. You could try strapping the foot and ankle with an ACE bandage when pain has lessened enough to resume work.
