I know I'm repeating myself here but, again, I'm SO sorry this happened to you. I swear, it seems every one of us have gone through an injury *just* when things are really ticking along and going well.
I can't recommend much specific in the way of exercise, other than upper body stuff of course, but I third the notion that it's a good idea to ask the doc what you CAN do. They seem to neglect that part and just say 'you're injured. Don't do anything.' Are you allowed to walk or do you have to keep off the leg altogether?
My tip is to maintain the running mental game while you're in recovery. During those regularly scheduled run times do something health-related, just to 'save the space' so to speak. If you can walk, great. At Christmas I fell and broke one foot, sprained both ankles and broke a rib. No running, no upper body exercise, no swimming or water running... for over six weeks. I thought I would go mental! Chatting with my Spark friends helped a lot. I ran vicariously through them.
Good luck, hang in there and check in with us to let us know how it's going!
