I broke my Fibula in December. I had surgery to put in a plate and syndesmosis screw. I spent 6 weeks in a cast non weight bearing and then another 6 weeks non weight bearing in a boot. I went to consultant a couple of weeks ago and he is happy with how it is going and said I can start to weight bear but still with the boot. I have been referred to have the syndesmosis screw removed but still waiting for a date. I am really really worried that by putting weight down the syndesmosis screw will break. I don't want to overdo things although the surgeon did say I could fully weight bear. Are you really full weight bearing with a boot on and also has anyone had a screw break and did it cause any problems. So so scared.
