Work accident, broke my tibia on my left leg. Also ankle fracture on my right leg. Surgery on my broken tibia, rod in the tibia bone and 4 screws, 2 top and 2 bottom. Just a cast on my right leg for 6 weeks and doctor said a boot after 6 weeks. 5 weeks since surgery, doctor said I can began standing on my left leg, put some weight to get a feel. However the problem is my foot, is stiff since it been immobilized and now when I try to move foot up and down its hard. If I try it harder to move and hurts and I can feel the screw in the bottom. Also my foot is swollen I'm afraid if I overdo it it might swollen bigger. Is weird how my left foot is swollen and not my right foot where my ankle fracture is. Oh I also have a skin graft on my left leg. Doctor said is normal for swollen foot but when I move it, it's hard, how can I regain my motion on my foot?
