Hi. I fractured my fibular and am now in a non weightbaring cast. Thankfully didn't need surgery. However I am overweight and crutches been a nightmare so I have been weightbaring to the point of not using crutches at all (single parent and school holidays too). Today I've got quite a hot, burning, liquidy pain so am on bed rest. My other issue is in 2 weeks we go on holiday - so hoping to have cast off at week 5 instead of 6 and get a boot. How long has anyone used boot for? I'm also a paediatric nurse and will be looking to go back to work 7 weeks after break and I'm nervous. Just started a new job and still in probation so worried about having more time off but think of I can use the boot to help support my ankle it might be ok?
