So about a week ago I broke my fibula - clean break with no surgery needed, so that's good. A week in and still very swollen, bruised and sore.
After seeing the ortho Dr, I was left with more questions (or concerns). I was put in a air boot with crutches. He mentioned that because it's not a weight bearing bone I would be able to start putting weight on it whenever I felt comfortable enough to. Has anyone experienced such a quick turnaround for walking? I'm a bit nervous to cause a setback.
As far as the boot I have been wearing during my normal day to day, however have been taking off at night to ice and sleep. Any concerns here? I have read people leave it on almost 24/7.
I definitely would appreciate any advice, tips or suggestions. Just want to make sure quick and successful recovery. Thanks in advance!!
