 Broken fibula, torn tendon@6 weeks
MaryAnn952    4:57pm Apr 30 2019

I came here looking for info on healing times, etc. I've been lurking here for a couple of weeks now. I have a broken right, more importantly, gas pedal fibula with torn tendon. The doctor decided against surgery and said if I stayed NWB it should mend in alignment ok. Xrays showed healing was going well and at 5 weeks cast came off and am in a boot, NWB.
Is there anyone else who didn't have surgery who can tell me how long I might be on crutches? I have zero stability in my ankle. Does that come back as I become weightbearing?
I have been reading all the stories here and my injury seems so insignificant compared to a lot on here, but being unable to almost anything on my own including leaving the house is really bringing me down. We only just moved here from out of state and don't know many people so I am dependant on my husband for everything so I try not to complain to him because he is doing so much.
If anyone has any encouraging words I'd love to hear them
