distal fibula fracture & bimalleolar fracture
I fractured my ankle – had surgery to put in a plate and 2 screws on 9/20 – on 10/12 I had the cast removed because of a blood clot behind my knee.
I now have a stabilizer boot to hold the foot at a 90 degree angle to protect the tendon.
The doctor says the break is healing well, if it wasn’t for the ligament I would be walking on it.
The only exercise she recommended is lifting the leg from the knee, and swinging the leg.
This doesn’t feel like much.
The ankle is still pretty swollen – although the doctor says it looks good and will be swollen for some time. Any other ideas on exercises that might help?
I see the doctor again in 3 weeks.
