Comment : I'm 7 weeks in...
Posted by Maya on Wed 11:00pm 16 March 2016


I'm very sorry to hear about your injuries.

I was hit by a car in a parking lot and broke my fibula in half, dislocated bones, broke back of ankle, avulsion fracture inner ankle, tore ligaments, I had to wait for 2 weeks for the swelling to go down, then got a orif (open reduction) surgery and a tightrope cable across my ankle.

I thought 2 weeks in a splint, 4 weeks in a cast, and voila!

Not so, I got the X-ray and was doomed to wear this bulky cam boot for a month...or two! No weight bearing. I guess I learned that weight bearing is really gradual. At 8 weeks I can touch my foot on the floor while fully standing on my good leg and that's it.

Be patient, and I hope things go well for you. It takes time.
