Hi, Can I ask those who has been (are) on a Fixed walking boot, I will start using the boot from next Tuesday, this is a partial weight bearing boot. I am slightly worried about how I am going to manage my activities around the house (you know what I mean by activiy though, doing tiny bits with 2 crutches!), Do you take off your boot at nights? I am worried about re rupturing it at night while asleep with sudden moves! I have been sleeping with cast for 5 weeks, I can't imagine how it is going to be. Do you take it off everytime you sit down and wear it if you want to go from living room to the kitchen or bathroom etc.? Were you alowed to fly (to be on the flight)?
I am on 6th weeks, feeling more hopeful and happier now as I can see some progress! But the ankle itself is very stiff.
Wish you all a speedy recovery.
