Hey everyone, I'm recently recovering from a pretty bad ankle fracture. It's been 6 weeks since surgery and I think I have made significant progress but other times I don't. I was non-weight bearing for about 4 weeks then was able to put partial weight on week 5. I am now on week 7 and my doctor told me I can start bearing full weight (as long as I can handle it). I have been using a walker the whole time because I am clumsy and didn't feel comfortable on crutches. Now that I can wear a shoe with an ankle brace, I want so badly to walk on my own but still need the walker because of the pain in my foot. I start PT on Monday and hopefully that will help. The pain in my foot when trying to put full weight and walk on my own is pretty bad. When can I expect this pain to start subsiding? I'm sure the phrase "No pain, No gain" comes into play in this situation but really hate the thought of re-injuring myself. 😖
