Hi all. I sustained a weber b non displaced ankle fracture following a fall. 6 weeks non weight bearing in a cast, 2 weeks in a moon boot..total nightmare for my normally fit & active 48 year old self. Anyway yesterday I came out of moon boot & are to be 100% weight bearing as tolerated. I'm finding that impossible. .not only is the pain in my foot & ankle intense but the actual process of walking is extremly hard. I feel like I'm not walking just propelling myself forward in some very awkward movement!! So basically I'm just using the crutches as trying to walk is a total mission!! I hate it. Would love to hear others experiences :-) Is this normal?? I will be seein PT in 2 days but in the meantime I feel totally lost.
