I starting FWBAT 3 three weeks ago after 10 weeks NWB fibula ORIF surgery on 3/15. Can only bear weight on my heel. Not on front of foot or tip toes no matter how hard I try. Pain causes me to walk on heel, but with pretty bad limp. Can only stand on bad foot for a few seconds before pain causes my good foot to drop or grab the counter to catch my balance. Pain more on top of foot vs bottom. Keep going back to one crutch to support bad foot as I too am feeling too much pressure on heel holding all my weight. Surgery was on angkle, not foot, so I don't understand why all this pain/weakness with the front of foot and toes??? Have a follow up Friday and gonna see if doc thinks a bone scan or CT of foot is appropriate as this doesn't make sense. Keep thinking maybe they missed a stress fracture in foot. Anyone out there have this problem when started to weight bear after ankle sugery??? And if so, did it get better. Do you think maybe I have foot break or stress fracture?
