 Re: fracture healing question
SMM    2:46pm Jan 24 2019

Hi Emily,

Wow! Just want to say that you are making amazing progress. Returning to full activities can take time. First time I broke the leg was many years ago, and I didn't have surgery. I was in casts for 18 weeks and didn't begin weight bearing in the cast until week 12. I broke the leg in a mid-July, and was returning to usual activities the following April. This past, a much more recent break, meant about 9 weeks in casts and it was four months before I was walking. Even at that point there was swelling, and I was lifting the leg, rather than taking natural strides. It does take work. Atrophy and proper gait come back in time, with work.

Best wishes,
Matt
