Just thought I'd ask for some opinions. Today is 2 weeks since my ORIF for a bimalleolar fracture on my right ankle (my driving ankle in Australia). - ffor the past 2 weeks I have basically been immobile, having my leg up all day long, only going to the bathroom and back straight to my couch all day, trying super hard to let it heal as much as possible I'm healthy and 28 yo
I went for my first check up today at the hospital where they took off the cast and the stitches on both sides of my ankle. They put me in the moon boot and said I can start partial weight bearing as of next week (3rd week post surgery). I was quite surprised, because everything I have read online and forums say you need at least 6 weeks until any weight bearing can be done.
Has anyone experienced this before?
Also has anyone been in a boot and was able to drive? ie; if you took the boot off while you are driving and then put it back on when you are out of the car....is this something that people have done, or can be done?
