 what's typical healing time
Therese    9:56am Apr 15 2019

I broke my tibia and fibula 3/10/19, surgery with ORIF 03/14/19 so I'm now 4 weeks post-op. I'm starting to bear weight on my foot/ankle while crutch walking. What are your experiences as to when 1) pain lessens enough that Vicodin is no longer needed (I'm also taking 800 mg Ibuprofen three times daily and elevating with ice application) and 2) able to weight bear on the ankle in a regular shoe. I have a job that requires walking and standing, getting up and down on from a chair frequently throughout the day. I'm trying to get my head around returning to work as it seems my progress is slow.
