Have been given a cam boot to wear waiting to see orthopedic surgeon, have broken bone in two places approx 1.5 inches above left ankle. Can anyone give me advice on whether you should wear 24 hours per day???

Re: Annie

Since it's a fracture I'd say 24hrs.

I would absolutely without question wear it 24/7 untilmitmis evaluated by an OS (make sure you see a foot and ankle specialized OS if possible). Then ask him/her for clarifications although I'm sure you will get plenty of info! Good luck!
