So glad to have found this blog. Going a little nuts here in New York City. Broke my fibula and tore my syndesmosis on February 16 while skiing in Italy. Emergency room and stabilizing cast there and managed to get back to New York where I had surgery on February 20. March 8 the cast was removed and replaced with an air boot. Unfortunately, I can't be weight bearing for a total of eight weeks because of the syndesmosis tear. The long screw for that comes out at week 12. I've managed to do okay with a rolling 'knee walker' but approaching week 5 now and getting mighty depressed about all of this. Hardest thing I've ever been through. Can someone tell me what to expect after week 8? I'm scheduled for home rehab but when will I actually be able to walk normally again. Thanks.
