Hi there. 6 weeks ago I underwent an ankle arthroscopy plus micro-fracture after a climbing accident last year. The surgery was to remove the damaged cartilage which has been causing constant pain whenever weight baring since the accident. I was told that I could fully weight bare with the airboot after the surgery. Today I went for the 6 week post op appointment with the surgeon, and he said I can now FWB without the boot. He said I should use the crutches for a bit longer to aid me to start walking again. I'm surprised that I have already been given the go ahead to FWB since it was a complex surgery apparently, 4 hours as well. I've been trying to do so today, it just feels so strange, as if I have forgotten to walk. The doctor didn't talk to me in detail, I just want to know if I should use both crutches when walking or just one crutch, and how long I should do this for. I don't see the physiotherapist for another 2 weeks unfortunately. Really appreciate any help/advice. Thank you.
