Mid thirties female here, bimalleolar fracture with dislocation on 7/21, surgery on 8/1. In about ten days, I'm transitioning from a hard cast to a walking boot. My surgical staples will be removed the same day. I've been on a knee scooter since the third day after my injury as I'm very bad with crutches. All totaled, I'll be NWB for about 4 weeks before the boot. I'm pretty scared to put weight on my ankle needless to say. What can I expect from the transition? What do I need to be prepared? Do people really use shoe lifts for the uninjured foot? Does the boot irritate the incision site?
