I'm 8 weeks out, was told I had to wait 2 weeks for surgery because of swelling, so 10 weeks since fall. Been in a hard cast 8 weeks, and my appointment last week showed fibula fracture still fractured, slight improvement; I do have 8 screws and a plate. I begged for a walking boot so I can ice, but was told do not try to walk. No problem, I won't! The doctor thinks I'm healing a bit slow, any opinions on that? Now that I can see my ankle, it's awful, looks like a pork loin, the swelling is amazing. The doc asked if I'm doing too much, I said no, but maybe I am. I rented a scooter to get around the house, but I still cook for my kids, do a few chores, but then go back into my bed elevated. I'm getting depressed and discouraged, but maybe even my limited activity on my scooter is too much? I'm still in a significant amount of pain as well, but after I saw the xray I suppose that's normal given I'm not put back together yet. Is 8 weeks a long time, or small potatoes lol? Just looking for advice. Maybe I should drink more milk, haha, I just don't know.
