 Re: Question on Partial Weight Bearing
dcb    2:36pm Jul 7 2017

Alison, I was told (at about 6 weeks post-op, I think) to progress from 0% to 100% in a boot over a period of 10-14 days then take the boot off and progress over the following 7-10 days to totally weight bearing. As I recall, I found it worked better to use both crutches until practically 100% weight bearing.

Good luck!

Fibula Fx lat. malleolus Weber B 12 June 2015
