Fractured fibula/lateral malleolus
I fractured my ankle about 7-8 weeks ago. I did not need surgery and was placed in a fiber glass which was just taken off a week ago. I need physical therapy now and have learned many of the exercises myself and have been doing them at home. I can put some weight on my foot and I use a cane to walk, but after a while on my feet, my foot swells. My medical insurance does not pay for PT, and I do not have the means to pay for it myself. Is it possible that by doing the exercises at home, such as the alphabet, ROM, and stretches, that I can walk without using a cane or crutches in another week? I need to return to my job, I am a waitress so this requires me to stand. I have already taken off almost 2 months I would like to hear from people with experience if it would be possibly for me to start putting full weight, without using a cane, in another week?
