In brief: Stay off it

You need to stay off of it using a cast or walking boot to protect it.
Also, you should be under a doctors care to make sure it is healing, has not shifted or moved and is in proper alignment to heal. If it is out of alignment you may need surgery as you don't want it to heal in the wrong position.

In brief: See a professional

If a stress fracture is not displaced and is stable it can usually be immobilized with a splint, cast, or rigid walking boot depending on the location of the injury.
Have you physician determine which course of treatment is best for you.
