People are thinking I don't want to walk! I broke my tibia, fibula and scattered my inner ankle (also dislocated all) at the end of March 2005)had surgery and they installed 3 plates and a bunch of screws. I was in a non weight baring cast for 2 months.Doctors said I would be back on my feet by June HA!HA!HA! My PT was sporatic to say the least. Anyways, I'm still not walking right. I know it's part mental that I don't want to put body weight on the effect foot even though its well healed. My ROM and balance just isn't there! I continue to use a walker or crutches yet I'm told I should be better by now. Anyone experience the same thing?
