8-9 wks — all of them on crutches?
Hi, I have a fibular fracture, which the orthopedic surgeon casted.
He told me this kind of fracture usually takes about 8-9 wks to heal. Does that mean that I’ll be non-weight bearing for all of those weeks, or does it simply mean that it takes the bone 8-9 wks to completely heal (i.e. can start limping on it earlier, etc)?Has anyone had experience with this fracture, and how long did it take before you could walk on 2 feet again (at least limp around w/out crutches)? Thanks
