Comment : Re: Sorry about your Leg
Posted by Amy_Y on Thu 8:08pm 13 June 2019
Hi Marina! I'm so so sorry you had to go through the same thing as I did. Can totally relate.
I was touch-down weight bearing for the first six weeks (less than 5 lbs), then ortho raised it to 30 lbs as I was still not showing any growth in week 6. I didn't feel much pain from weight bearing. I guess it's because I have always been putting some weight on it? I do feel some discomfort with the increased swelling but not really painful.
I think it's very worth checking out with your doctor about this as non of my doctors and PTs mentioned pain with increased weight bearing. How did you break your leg? Any chance that you might also broke some bones on your foot or ankle?
