So I am about 5 weeks along with my fractured ankle (no surgery). I had a splint for about 10 days and I am now in my second cast. Saw my doc last week and he said my bone was healing well.
I can easily wiggle my toes and move my heel up and down in the cast. I am sure it will hurt once I can start putting weight on it, but I am thinking because everything feels fine I should be able to get back to normal ( aside from swelling and tiredness) within the next few weeks. Am I being overly optimistic? Could it be more about getting used to being in cast than actually healing? If I get to have a walking cast and a referral to physio at my next d9c visit, what can I expect from the next stages of recovery.
