so on Monday, purely on my own stupidity, I dislocated my ankle with a broken fibula. I was in the worst pain from the time I did it to the time when they relocated it. I had surgery the next day on it to put a metal plate and two( not 4 like the doctor thought) screws in so that was the best news I could have gotten. So now I'm on the long road to recovery and the doc said that I would have a cast on for 10-12 weeks completely non- weight bearing. And that it takes about 3 times the cast time to get 100%.
Has anyone on here had this injury? If so how long did it take to heal?( Im 18 yrs old by the way) It seems to me that the time I was told is alot but I have never had the injury so I wouldnt know. If the healing time is as much as the doctor says it is, i might mess up my college plans in the fall. But that is a ways away.
I know the hardest part is the fact that I cannot put any weight on my left leg for a few months I'm very nervous as to how I will get around, sit in school, sit in a car ect...
When I first injured it and I saw it twisted I was just concerned about how bad the injury was, but now im concerned about being able to walk and eventually play soccer and lax and be able to cycle again. Someone put my mind at ease.
