Hi fellow sufferers, as you can see from my x-ray i had a pretty bad trimalleolar fracture 11 weeks ago. I spent the 1st week waiting for swelling to go down so they could operate. So 10 weeks later i have started physio and have limited movement. Absolutely no weight bearing apart from the sitting position setting foot on floor and my own leg weight on ankle/foot. Added set back was crutch slipping on wet tiled floor and me banging foot into the ground, i was wearing air boot but still hurt a lot! So now i can't do exercises because it's sore from that. So i'm wondering is there someone out there with a similar break who has recovered? What were the time scales for recovery? Any tips for physio to get some movement back into ankle?
?Thanks in advance
