I broke 3 bones in my ankle. One on each side and one in the back and put the tibia out of alignment. I had surgery right away and screws put in for repair. Surgery was succesful and after 7 weeks the cast was removed. I was told by surgeon to start walking with it using crutches which I have done for 12 days. I go back to see him in 6 weeks. My question is how long will it be for recovery.
I am unable to really put pressure on it as the pain is pretty bad and have swelling still. I am no spring chicken and use a walker instead of crutches most of the time. 65 years old. I do some exersises such as the alphabet one and bending the toes towards me. The specialist did not seem to think I needed physio.
I am anxious to get walking once again. thanks Nancy
