I'm new to this panel. I been suffering with a lot of pain and swelling since my cast came off 3 weeks ago. I broke my tibia 3/18/19. I don't have insurance so I can't get physical therapy. I did find exercises on the web and been doing them. I have a walking boot although when I have it on after an hour I'm in agony.
I just don't know what to do anymore with the swelling/pain. I ice, elevate, ibuprofen, tylenol, epsom salt etc. I was told by ortho that I can walk on it i.e. weight bearing. I only can limp. I finally took my first shower (all the way in shower) a week ago & could stand up fine but boy did my leg/foot/ankle hurt after.
I drove my car 1st time yesterday about 1/2 a mile and no issue.
I hope I can get some positive feedback from anyone out there. Sorry this was so long winded.
