I mentioned in a previous post that I broke my tibia and fibula on 17th Feb (now 2 weeks 5 days ago) and had surgery to insert a metal plate and 9 screws on 18th Feb. I have been part weight bearing with crutches since the surgery and when I seen the Doctor yesterday, he said I'm ready to go full weight bearing and start to lose the crutches.
However I'm finding this SO hard! I don't know if I'm having a mental block or what, but I just cannot get myself into a proper walking pattern without the crutches! I'm hopping all over the place and it's like my body physically won't let me walk as if I've forgotten!
If anybody has any advice on how to deal with this that would be great! I don't have any pain bearing weight on my bad ankle, mainly just fear!
