Re: Help, 12year old daughter ankle OCD surgery I week ago

I'm not sure how they do it in Australia, but most doctors in the US have patients NWB for at LEAST 6 wks and most are 8. I have heard of some people on here who walked earlier, but have reported problems because of it. Not wanting to scare you and again, not sure of how it is done there, just letting you know what is most common in the US. There are also different kinds and degrees of the surgery and maybe that had to do with it? Have you by chance discussed this with the surgeon and asked his reasoning? Maybe her case is specific to his chosen treatment plan?
