I’ve been recovering from a broken fibula. A few days ago I hit my 6 weeks post op day. For the past 4 weeks I have been full weight bearing in a walking boot. My appointment is scheduled for Tuesday and the Doc mentioned taking my boot off and having me start to walk without it.
Beings that it is the weekend, I am unable to contact my doctor for advice so I am here to get some input.
The pickle I have found myself in is that I was invited to a picnic, and there will be a pool there.
Do you think it is okay to go in the pool? Like I said, I am six weeks post op and my wound is heeled over and the scabs have fallen off. Does this mean I am no longer at risk for infection?
Also considering I am full weight bearing and have taken a few steps without my boot, to you think it’s safe to go in the pool?
