 Re: Greetings Michael Re: Broken fibula, torn tendon@6 weeks

Hi Matt,

Things have been getting better for me. I had my six week post-op appointment with my orthopedist yesterday and he gave me the greenlight to start physio and partial weight-bearing. Swelling has gone down substantially and now mostly resides down by my ankle and foot. Which is to be expected with a low tib fracture.

Your tips were very help with elevating my leg. I implemented the T-Method where you lay a pillow horizontally and two vertically to make a cross. Found that to be the most comfortable position when sleeping. Thanks again for all of your help!

Mike
