 Question on Partial Weight Bearing
Alisony    6:06am Jul 6 2017

Today after 7 weeks of toe touch weight bearing, my OS has told me I can now partially weight bear at 50% building up gradually to walking at the end of month 3 which is in 5 weeks time.

For those who have had a similar instruction, how quickly did you increase your percentages, and did you use both crutches for the entire period of partial weight bearing, or reduce it to 1 crutch or a cane?

18 May 17 - car crash- fractured tib fib
19 May - Surgery 2 plates 17 screws
23 May - short cast TTWB
7 July - PWB
7 Aug - Single Crutch
17 Aug - FWB walking without crutches
27 Oct - Stem Cell therapy for delayed union and loose screw removal
