  1. I have a bimalleoler fracture on my rigt foot. Surgery was open reduction & internal fixation. It has been 6 weeks since surgery. At 8 weeks I will start using the foot & leg. How long will it be before good enough strength for safe comfortable driving & getting around independently? I can move my toes and my ankle up & done & to the side some. There is still swelling.

  2. i have scars all over my legs, my friends say but vitamin e on them, but that hasn’t done anything. when i get cold, my legs turn purple and look really nasty. how do i get rid of them?
