Broken ankle, surgery, 2 incisions, help me!
I received surgery for my broken ankle on September 12, it was originally broken August 31. I had a plate and screws put in. There were two incisions. I was in a plaster cast for about 2 weeks after the surgery. Then I was placed into a regular cast, which was one for 6 weeks. Next, the doctor took of the cast and told me to not put any weight on it. In 2 weeks, I will be going back and hopefully getting a boot. I have been non weight bearing since the day of the accident August 31. How long will I need to wear the boot? And can I drive with it? I am in college and due to this accident I had to go home. So far, I have missed one semester and I do not want to miss another. Please feel free to email me @ my AOL account. Thanks!
