For that shower you will also need a shower chair. You sit in the chair and cover the leg or have it sticking out of the shower. Hopefully you have someone living with you that can help you move in and out of the shower. You sure donít want to fall again.
Read some of the other posts and write down questions for the doctor. My last broken ankle (not this time around) I had a spiral fracture and had surgery with two plates and about 10 screws. They did surgery on me four weeks apart because the swelling was so bad they could only do one side at a time.
This time theyíve told me I canít bear weight for twelve weeks. Last time I was on my feet by seven weeks. It varies a lot depending on the break, and whether or not you have surgery. I hope I can drive by Christmas.
Keep your chin up and bury yourself in books movies or hobbies. Let us know what the doctor says. Best of luck.
