I broke my ankle (end of tib) whilst biking in the Alps back on the 20th July, resulting in an open cast in France, and (eventually) surgery back here in the UK some weeks later. I obviously had a full cast post surgery, and went back four weeks after that for another checkup and a new cast. Two weeks after that, the cast was removed and I've had the ski boot affair since 19th September, allowing to put some weight on the ankle with the help of crutches. It was suggested that I would start physio soon, but as of today I still haven't heard anything and i'm itching to get back out there on my bike/running etc.
My question is a) do I need to wear the ski boot all the time (apart from showers/bedtime etc) and b) is it sensible to be spinning (in side, not clipped in, low resistance, no pain). I don't want to do any further damage, but I can't help but think that if it feels OK to spin lightly, and there's no pain, then that seems ok? I figure if it starts to hurt, i'll just stop..
Any help would be much appreciated as I sadly haven't much advice to follow.
