I broke my ankle in 2 places late November, after an operation to put a plate and 5 screws one side and 3 screws the other, I was in cast for 7 weeks, had it removed 5 days ago and i still can't walk properly, I can walk on my tiptoes using my crutches but not on the sole of my foot, I believe this is because I cannot physically bend my ankle enough to make the movement, is anyone able to help or reassure me? I feel like everyone I've asked has got up and walked in like 3 - 5 days and I'm worried as I can't, I am not having any physiotherapy as of yet as I thought I would just try on my own but now thinking of getting some as I don't know what to do, does physiotherapy help? Or is it better to do it alone. Please help
