Re: Fractured ankle - 6 weeks on - need rehab help

I would go gradual if I were you. Start out doing partial weight bearing with crutches and work your way to full weight bearing. Listen to your body though. You're going to probably experience some extra swelling and pain for a while. You will need to do some more ice and elevation. You could start with the boot too at first if you are more comfortable with that. No one knows your body more than yourself.
Take care!
