Almost 6 weeks ago I broke my right ankle and the fifth metatarsal on my left foot.
On my foot I've been in an air walking boot the whole time. I can stand without the boot but haven't risked a walking yet as the boot helps make me nice and stable.
For my ankle, it was a stable fracture so no surgery required. I was in a temporary non weight bearing cast for a week and a half, and have been in a cast with a weight bearing shoe for the past 4 weeks - walking OK with crutches for the past 3 weeks. I have an appointment at the fracture clinic on Wednesday and if everything looks OK I'm hoping the cast will be removed. Not sure how likely this will be.
If it is removed, how mobile am I likely to be? In your experiences, will I need physio or will I just be able to pop on a pair of shoes and get going (maybe with crutches help for a week)?
Also recommendations for getting rid of the dead skin under there would be much appreciated!!!
