Hi, I'm looking for a bit of advice regarding physio. I'm 6 weeks post op, have 2 plates and 12 pins in my ankle. I was 3 weeks NWB in cast, just done 3 weeks PWB in walking boot. Am bit confused about when I should see a physio as the doc I saw 3 weeks ago at cast removal told me to remove walking boot few times a day and start moving ankle then in few weeks get physio. So at my next check up on Monday I saw a different doc who told me to go to FWB over the next few weeks then out of walking boot and into a shoe. When I asked about physio he said they wouldn't do that until I was actually walking and told me to make another appointment for 3 months time. Totally confused now as told different things. Am going to call the orthopaedic clinic tomorrow to try to clarify but any info regarding when it's normal to get physio would be much appreciated. I live in Glasgow. Thanks
