 Re: Muscle cramps and steps backwards
TDH    6:43pm Aug 4 2019

I donít have any answers for you as I am going through a possibility of your situation. I had a dislocated trimalleolar 9 years ago and have a bimalleolar now 4 weeks post-op orif. The dr says since I have been (and am on) so many immunosuppressant drugs for my lupus (itís complicated) and I had that previous break (yes on same ankle) I am at risk of non-union. He says he wonít be able to tell until I am 6 to 8 weeks after surgery. But I am starting PT next week and he put me in the boot and says I can start putting weight on it next week! If I am at risk of non-union is it a bad idea for me to go ahead and start putting weight on it?

I wish you the best. I canít imagine how painful and frustrating that must be.
