Almost 3 weeks ago, I fell and broke my right ankle and the fifth metatarsal in my left foot. My right ankle is in a weight bearing cast, and my left foot is in a boot. I do have a wheelchair if I'm going anywhere which would require anything but a short walk, but when I'm on the crutches I bear most of the weight on my left foot.
My right ankle is a stable fracture, although the consultant wants a weekly x-ray to check it remains so. I've only just started staying to bear a bit of weight.
My foot isn't painful exactly it just niggles when I'm on it and then starts to throb when on it for more than 5 minutes or so. Will this make my recovery period longer? I am overweight too so that adds more stress to the damaged bones.
Opinions would be appreciated.
