On the 27/04 I managed to fracture tibia, cause an oblique intra-articular fracture of the distal fibula from falling down two stairs, I had to wait a week and half for surgery and it was pinned and plated in the mean time it was put in a cast, after the operation it was put in another cast then two weeks after that I got another cast change. Four weeks later I was given the boot Oh how I was delighted thinking I was getting my life back...how wrong was I I was told to still not weight bear for another two weeks then I could start to weight bear with the boot. So Monday I was delighted finally two feet on the floor Oh the pain is horrendous, Tuesday I went to physio to be given some exercises which basically are pointing my toes and making circular motions....then to be told there is nothing more he can do with ankle to strengthen it for another 4 weeks after I have been to see the consultant....I seem to be getting nowhere by that point I will of been off sick 14 weeks from work can anyone tell please tell me what's to be expected after I get this boot off? As it seems I won't be returning to work immediately afterwards or am I wrong?? Ps i spend all day on my feet at work up and down running checkouts.
Any advice gratefully appreciated!
