general physiotherapy question, pain and painkillers
six weeks I had a fracture ( lateral malleolus) non displaced, leg in cast for six weeks, now cast removed and told by specialist, to now go and walk. no mention about physio…. so I am doing it myself, but I get some pain and I know its early days. I wondered if its wise to take painkillers at this early stage to walk better? incidentally, everyone tells me how well i’m doing at this early stage.?
