I've had my airstep for two weeks now from a broken ankle and surgery

Posted , 2 users are following.

it's not been too painful. The only concern of mine is should my boot dent my sides of foot and top a little ? it is swollen a bit on the syrgery side where the plates and pins are. should air step boots dent you feet? is this normal? also I feel I'm still on about 25% weight bearing as I am very scared to do any more. any advice will be grateful

    Hi, I've had boot on for 5 weeks and yes, mine leaves dents on my legs & feet... only where my ankle & leg are a bit puffy/swollen still, which I think is perfectly normal whilst it's healing... that's additional protection...
