When you were released to walk, how long did it take? I was virtually immobile for 15 weeks, non weight bearing. For an unknown reason I had delayed healing, but I have arrived. However, doc says the outer edge of fracture not completely healed, the whole fracture 90% healed, his words. 3 weeks ago doc said put some pressure on it, did that. Now Wednesday he says dump the boot. Pardon me, my ankle is the size of a cantaloupe, I've only just started PT, and it hurts more now because I'm pushing myself. I guess I should just go with how it feels rather than his orders? I'm doing decent in the boot, I can use one crutch, just seems like he's pushing me a bit quick. Range of motion is pretty crappy, but I'm trying. Also, my back is so messed up from walking, I guess because I'm wobbling. Lol, what a journey. Anyhow, you think I should continue the boot walking for now? When I told the physical therapist she didn't seem on board with no boot. Just looking for everyone's time frames after they were released to walk.
