 Re: partial weight bearing in boot at 4 weeks
Marlen    12:03am Oct 2 2019

Hi there! I'm fairly new here too and it looks like we got the same kind of break. I wore a partial cast for a week and was told either get a boot by the next doctor visit (which was a week from my first appointment) or I will be put in a cast. I got the boot and was told time and time again from the Orthopedist that it takes 6 weeks for the bone to heal. At week 5 he told me I could start partial weight bearing. I had a hard time and just couldn't do it until week six. It was slow go and I am currently starting week 9 and I am walking on both feet, but it's still very hard. The swelling is no joke. I need to walk fully to work, but realize I need to listen to my body and if it takes long then it takes longer. I hope that helps.
