I broke both ankles November 17, 2019 and had trimalleolar fx with dislocation on left, and bimalleolar fx with dislocation on rt. Surgery on left ORIF on the 19th, cast only on the right. My question....anyone else have experience with BOTH at the same time? I have read, and watched a lot of things about recovery from ONE side only. I am interested in anyones experience with recovery of both at the same time. The doctor has given me a vague timeline. Maybe some unique challenges, solutions, perspectives? I can't relate to someone hobbling on one leg or using one of those scooters for one knee. Right now I am in a wheelchair, and unable to bear any weight on either leg. Once I go to partial weight bearing, how in the world do I manage to stand up without bearing all my weight on either leg? I got questions. And I am not in PT yet because there is nothing they can do with me until I have the go ahead to bear weight. Thanks!!
