Re: Brostrom (Ligament reconstruction) - Return to Work

I had ligament reconstruction and I was off work for 8 weeks. I am on my feet all day long other than when I sit down to eat lunch. For me 8 weeks was just about perfect. I was transitioned to weight bearing fairly quickly. I can't remember how long I was NWB, but only had a splint for the 1st week and then boot from there on after. If you are just out of the cast now, and starting to walk I can see why you are taking the norco again. That was a painful time. Goodluck!!
