I will be 6 weeks post op for ORIF of my ankle on Friday. I had 3 bones broken and a dislocated ankle from a fall. I go to see my surgeon on Friday again as well. I've been in the boot since week 2 and started physio for range of motion in week 3, and my range of motion is almost back to normal now but I've been NWB. I have no pain and haven't since week 2. I really want to try standing. I don't even wear the boot anymore unless I'm going out and even then I take it off when I get where I'm going. Has anyone ever tried standing before they get the go ahead at the 6 week check? I'm dying to just do it...do you think it's a bad idea to just stand up or should I wait?
