just had an interesting thought about those of us with no "good leg" after fracturing opposite ankle when we had pre existing injuries to the other leg. I am 17 weeks out from Tri malleoular fracture, ORIF, and dislocation and am trying to wean myself off elbow crutches. As soon as I fully weight bear without crutches I limp badly and am getting pain in my opposite knee where I have severe osteo arthritis. If I use my crutches just as stabilisers walking through them total weight bearing I do not limp and do not get pain in the other knee. What do others think of this practice? It also helps me overcome the fear of falling and I can walk at a faster pace. Around the house I am not using crutches at all. Thoughts? Speedy recovery all.
