Anyone else have problems getting boot on? I'm almost 12 weeks out from surgery, displaced and fibula fracture, all the screws and plate like everyone else. I'm not even allowed to try to walk yet, doc says no callous seen on X-ray yet. I was told I can remove boot to shower or anytime I'm in bed, so to avoid pain I stay in bed and keep the boot off.
Here's the problem, my foot won't reach the bottom of the boot. My swollen ankle is in the way. I'm sort of suspended about 1/4 inch off the bottom of the boot. I'm not comprehending how I will even attempt to walk in this damn thing, I just can't get my foot flat in it.
Any thoughts? My pain level goes up so much just sitting in the boot as it squeezes my ankle, as opposed to just sitting with a free ankle.
