Hello. I fractured my ankle on 9/9/15, exactly 3 weeks ago today. Broken right distal fibula with ligmaent damage that required surgery. Had my surgery on 9/17/15...metal plate put in with 7 screws. Yesterday (12 days later), I had my post-op visit. The doctor took off my cast (splint), removed the stitches, then gave me a walking boot. He said to keep the boot on, but I can take it off whenever I'm sitting with my foot elevated or when I take a bath. He also said I should attempt to move my foot up and down slowly. Also, I start physical therapy this Friday. I went back to work today, and frankly my ankle felt bad all day...mainly from swelling I believe.
So my question is, does this seem awfully quick to already be in a walking boot and starting physical therapy. Thank you all...I look forward to reading your stories as I'm sure it will also help me on the road to recovery.
