I broke my tib/fib and dislocated it on May 28th and had surgery on June 5th. I'm almost 10 weeks post up, and I have an air cast now.
I had my first physical therapy 2 weeks ago and they cleared me to start walking. However, I still am using my crutches. I do put a minimum amount of weight on my bad ankle, but it mostly all is on my crutches. I still feel a lot of discomfort when trying to walk and I haven't made much progress.
The range of movement to my ankle is okay.. It's about 50% what it used to be. I am only 24 years old and I am very worried that I will never be able to walk normally or that this healing process is going to take even longer than it already has..
For anyone else that has gone through this, is this normal? Should I be walking without crutches by now?
