 Re: Update: (Good news) 7.5 Weeks After Bimalleolar Fracture
Ange    9:42pm Apr 10 2018

I'm at 50% wb moving onto 75% this week. Also working on dropping a crutch this week. I've been wb while sitting without the boot - today for the first time I walked with one crutch and no boot with my pt. So we're in a pretty similar place.

I've been showering with the boot - scared I'll whack it ;) but I'm still sleeping with the boot. Considering how much it annoyed me when I first got it, its funny that I don't wanna sleep without it. My pt told me to keep it on for another week. If you feel safer with it on, keep it on. 7 weeks is still pretty early for healing.

I had a bad week with pain & swelling, but an awesome week gaining back flexibility in my ankle. In one week of doing exercises I went from doing a 10 degree flex & heel lift to 40 degrees.

But all this does hurt though. Work gradually and at your own pace.
