I broke and dislocated my ankle back in mid April resulting in pins and a plate. I was sent home with instructions to non weight bear for six weeks. I don't know what i expected when i went back but i wasn't expecting to be told the bone hasn't healed and to go away for another six weeks!.
Fortunately i have healthcare and so got a second opinion and was told to start physio as with out putting weight on it the bone won't be stimulated and so won't grow. I have exercises and now have been told to partially weight bear and have had the swelling and funny colours as well as pain. What id like to ask is has anyone here had a similar experience? I've been informed the metal work can hole my ankle together and to leave the boot off while at home all the time but I'm so scared of putting to much stress on it. It seems so un natural to use it at all and I'm at the point where i don't care about if it hurts i just want to fix it and resume life.
