I am in 6 weeks post op for ankle arthrodesis surgery. There are 8 screws for the ankle arthrodesis, plus a plate for Bunion surgery. These surgeries were both done in the same surgery 6 weeks ago. I was non-weight bearing for the first 6 weeks. I am now out of the cast and in a walking boot in my seventh week with crutches and just started to use some weight on the ankle. Is 6 weeks too early to be starting to weight bear? I do not wear walking boot in bed or sometimes when relaxing. I wear the boot whenever I move about, at this point, with my crutches, for weight bearing practice.
