i am 9 weeks post op from trimalleoar ankle fracture with plates and pins. The surgeon everything
looks good with healing and I have been in physical therapy for 4 weeks. Currently in aircast and was doing well with two crutches and almost full weight bearing. Two days ago, my PT moved me to full weight and only one crutch. Painful, but i managed for short distances...but now swelling is back, inside ankle very painful and he has moved me back to tow crutches and weight as much as I can manage for a few days and he will try again with one crutch next week, but still in aircast
Anyone else have this setback when starting to get rid of crutches and walk? I feel like this process is not going well and how am I supposed to be able to walk with no support????
