 Re: St. Patrick's Day break

Hi Arwen

This has to be quick as I have to get moving to get ready for work, but thought I could share my experience as my break 3 years ago sounds similar to yours. Like you I wanted to know how long my recovery would be to be able to get back to walking and driving. Early on, through my research, I estimated 4 months, but ultimately I was walking soon after getting out of my cast at about 8 weeks. I took the next month or so to get back the flexibility and strength in my ankle and was driving at 3 months post op. Itís been many years since Iíve been a runner and prefer low or no impact cardio which has been fine. I still sometimes have to be careful going down stairs as I have a slightly restricted range of motion in that ankle to this day.

Sending healing vibes.

Kate
