 Re: 5.5 weeks and out of cast - broken fibul
SMM    10:44am Oct 12 2017

Hi Angela,

Great to hear that you are making such progress. Yes, what you are feeling seems completely normal. Have you seen your physio yet? The physio should be able to recommend and clear the appropriate exercises. One way I remember getting used to weight bearing was just sitting in a chair, back straight, and both feet on the ground. Having the feet on the ground and just applying a little pressure let me know how far/much I could add weight and helped the leg get used to weight bearing. Also, toe lifts from the seated position were helpful.

Best wishes,
Matt
