| | Re: Am I able to walk after 6-week recovery?
I broke my fibula on May 5th 2012 during soccer, had surgery on May 7th, Started Physiotherapy on June 20th until early July 2012, was able to go to class in a walking boot on July 4th.
I say if you want to quickly recover, you have to practice walking at home EVERYDAY (after your doctor or physiotherapist had given you the green light of course) , with support or without support. I practiced walking in a walking boot and do strengthening exercises recommended by my physiotherapist on a daily basis, I was able to go back to play soccer late August 2012.
Stay strong, its a long and boring process for recovery, especially if you have trips and fun stuff planned, but for 6 weeks, the surgery swelling had not completely gone, so I suggest you cancel your trip. I know it sucks to be missing out on things like these, but you will have time to go again after u have fully recovered !
