I agree with you Diana - the chair is the way to go. I am now 7 weeks NWB, but I "might" get my boot and PWB one week from today. I have been able to get my ankle wet for 1 1/2 weeks, but I still take the sit-down shower with the flexible shower-head. It would be too dangerous to stand up in the regular shower on one leg with soap running down my legs! The sit-down shower gets old after 7 weeks, but it seems to be the easiest way to go - at least I can have both feet in the tub now!
By the way, I also have a trimalleolar fracture of the tib/fib with hardware. I'm going through the airport next week - I'll let everyone know how it goes on my diary at Diane_M.
