On NYE (yes, NYE) I managed to break my Fibula and damage all the ligaments in my ankle, including the Talus shifting out of position.
On 1st Jan, I had ORIF surgery on the leg, resulting in 7 screws and a plate being fitted (see photo of xray) and wound 2 weeks after surgery prior to stitches being removed (2 weeks after surgery).
4 weeks later (now) after being non-weight bearing for the last six weeks in a cast, I am due to visit the hospital to have a removable boot fitted.
The doc said this would be for 2-4 weeks.
My question is, how much longer will it be before I am able to go back to work? My job involves traveling through walking to the train station (10 min walk) and walking around an office for much of the day sitting with various different members of staff.
Realistically, how long would it be until I am walking freely and can walk properly in order to do my job?
