It has been 6 weeks. June 23 I broke my fibula, dislocatedthe tibia and severed the ligaments playing roller derby in a tournament. I have been feeling pretty good with barely any pain meds. I don’t wear my air cast much as my dr. told me to keep it off as much as possible and to flex my foot back and forth, which I do. I went to the beach today and after much struggling and laughter, managed to get me and my rubber dingy in the water. Once out far enough. I got in and walked with the dingy, which felt amazing and no pain at all. Later this evening I tried walking with my crutches because I have read everywhere that the bone is healed at 6weeks and people can start walking with about 25% of their body weight, but holy! My ankle is sore now (burning, aching and throbbing) and i have burning feeling right up my leg to my inner thigh. Is this right? Is this supposed to happen? My 6-7 week appointment is 4 days from now. I think I might have jumped the gun with my excitement. I don’t remember it feeling like this the last time I broke my other ankle. Has anyone had similar experience when they first started walking again?
