Re: Walking after broken ankle

Hi I got my plaster off last Thursday 30th August after 6 weeks.
I had surgery for a broken ankle I now have a plate with several screws.
I have been told to walk on it now with elbow crutches which I am not managing, I have not been referred to physio.
My concern is I haven't yet walked my foot is very swollen and I guess i have lost confidence.
Any advice would be appreciated is this normal after a break ?
