Hi I hope any reply would provide some answer to my question. Broken my fibula a month ago, wore a back slab for 3 weeks then cast on for another 4 weeks and was told I could bear weight. I tried and a week later (after the cast has been fitted, so 1 week in cast and 4 weeks after break) there is still too much pain. Not sure if I just ‘walk through’ the pain or actually keep nwb?? The pain is not near the break but at the top of my foot almost by the talus bone. Any reply much appreciated.

Good luck with this, it really sucks!
Don't let anyone tell you to walk through the pain. Your body is telling you, "Hey self, Something isn't right. the foot hurts!" Each patient is going to have different levels of pain. We are unique beings.
I had an "ankle fusion " on Sept 6th, 2017. I continued telling the surgeon something wasn't right. I had an x-ray every 6 to 8 weeks. He continued to tell me the fusion looks great, he did have to remove a screw that was backing out. and I would reply can we do a c-scan? Something is wrong. Well, I wished he was right. After the c-scan, he said your right. The unfortunate thing for being right, I will be going back into the hospital for my second fusion. I tell all my friends and family, "You are your biggest advocate."
Research, research and then research again.
