I had a trimalleolar fracture and dislocation, followed by surgery. I’m 10 weeks post-op and having trouble transitioning from crutches to full weight bearing. I’ve been doing partial weight bearing for a few weeks now but just can’t seem to make that final transition! The area behind my ankle around the Achilles just really hurts to put full weight on. Any advice on how long it usually takes to transition would be helpful. It’s getting very frustrating being on crutches after so long. I did finally start driving today which has been a huge relief. I’m doing PT 3x a week and exercises every day. Any advice is much appreciated!!
