I was in a car accident last Saturday and in trying to hold the brake down I dislocated/fractured my right ankle. The bone was protruding from the top of my foot and I was taken to Shock Trauma in Baltimore for its repair. I am home now with an external brace and a walker and it is very hard to get around. I was told I have 6-8 weeks of resting my foot and another round of surgery is expected to put pins and plates, followed by another long round of down time. I haven't had my follow through appoitnment with my orthopedic surgeon and any information I received was when I was coming out of anesthesia or on pain killers. Just wondering, is this routine for ankle recovery? Should I plan to be away from my office for two 6-8 week periods for recover? I see the doctor in three days but was wondering if anyone else has this issue. Thanks!
