 Re: Nervous about full leg cast coming off?

Next might be a below-the knee cast (or possibly a boot). Quite possibly another six weeks or more with crutches (may be less).

Warning: your knee is not going to move much at the moment - that will take time and physio. Hint: do the exercises the physio gives you to do, as often as they say to do them, however boring. It pays off down the line.

PT can be a bit painful but generally it's a "good" pain, as tissue get mobilised.

Do report back!

Fibula Fx lat. malleolus Weber B 12 June 2015
ORIF plate 18 June. Cast problems (allodynia) so boot from 25th but NWB.
25 July start PWB in boot, 7 Aug PWB without boot. 14th Aug few steps FWB.
9 Sept 10-steps jog 25 Sept: PT says go run!
