Oblique fibular fracture on 26th May, no operation, just a cast for 6 weeks and today the consultant sent me on my way with no cast, no walking boot and no x-Ray. Hurray! But I can't help but feel really scared - what if my ankle hasn't healed and now I'm walking on a broken ankle with no support? It hurts on the break when I try flexing my foot, and I can't find any forum posts with people not getting a walking boot for two weeks first. I'm 30 and very active (but pretty heavy at just under 12 stone), so maybe that's why, but I'd love to hear from someone who also had a cast for six weeks followed by no walking boot - or anyone who can reassure or suggest to me what I should be doing, he was not particularly forthcoming with the advice about crutches/weight bearing. Thank you all!
