    Hi Danny 8weeks and walking, seems too Warenford my liking. Have you been told by yr consultant that it's OK? I'm 18 weeks dwn the line and still using 1 crutch. Still have a lot if pain some days more than others if I've been on my feet for too long without elevating and icing. I have had plates and screws on both sides, so maybe a bit more damage than you? Gave you had anything g done? I also had 2 casts before the boot, so may be OK for you to walk. But please ask if it's OK for you the last thing you want is to go backwards if your walking and applying too much weight before your ready. Good luck. Sx

    Hi Danny,

    Are you doing PT ?  You are lucky that you can walk, I started to WB 4 days ago after 6 weeks from surgery and the pain at night has been unbearable so I imagine you may be pushing yourself too much.

    I have been very strict w pain meds and last night I had to take them to sleep 

    I assume once you start to walk it creates pain for awhile. But everyone is different

      Sounds ad if your OK for walking if your under PT. They would tell you if it's too soon to walk. But a fracture is very painful too, pain is most probably all the nerves working to get back to normal. I've read quite a. Few peoples concerns on the forum with fracture 's and no surgery, they too have pain, so think it's normal. Keep up with your meds if you were given any no need for pain if medication can help. Hope it calms soon sx

    Danny are you wearing your Even Up Shoe on good foot. If your not walking level in the boot your foot turns and creates more pain. And on days the pain is too much use crutches and only bear weight that is comfortable.  Today in paying the price for driving a slow 400km trip. I was relying on being able to use cruise control but got half way and it rained. So good by cruise control and hello foot pressure. We get our ambition and capabilities confused.

      I drove my dr crazy. Every time I was concerned I saw her. Surgeon was no help at all  his job was done. But GP was amazing she fitted me in every time I was worried she answered all my questions.  She did say to walk on all of my foot and if I couldn't then to use the crutches. I hope you get your answers at fracture clinic and let us know what they say.
