 Cast Off and feel isolated......
HeatherMcK (31.91.138.---)   12:01am Nov 14 2017

Hi guys, looking for some advice, reassurance or simply a suck it up and move on!

I got my cast off on 8th November after 6 and a half weeks for spiral fibula break (ORIF metal plate, 7 screws) and small tibia break (no surgery). Dr said ok go walk and that was it! No boot, no mention of physio just come back in 3 months for an X-ray!

As you can imagine I feel like I have just been left to my own devices. My ankle barely moves, im trying to walk but canít put much weight on it, im tearful all the time because I feel like I may never walk again. My ankle is still bruised along my foot on both sides which makes me wonder about ligament damage. Im petrified Iím doing more damage than good as I have no professional advice to turn to.

Can any out there give me some advice?
