I had surgery on my right ankle, plate on right side, and screw on left side, 3 weeks ago. I went to the doctor for post op on Monday this week, and he was happy with progress, but still NO WEIGHT BARING ALLOWED!!! I started work again yesterday (Wednesday, 14.01.2015), and on the way to the loo I accidently slipped and instinctively used my broken foot as my "net" and it caught my entire body weight.
I am now worried because my ankle is very swollen now. Do you think I need to worry, and how do you know if there is serious problems after this situation, and when to get to the doctor?\
My next doc appointment is in 4 weeks, and still need to not bare weight for another 6 weeks... very worried... please help!
