| | Broken Fibula
My x-ray shows a one inch break on the outside of my Fibula approximately 1 inch up from the bottom of the fibula. This break just flares out like 1/8 inch and then ends in the bone just below. There appears to be an additional small break inland from the first break mentioned. The clinic Dr., knowing I had no insurance for this, did not cast it but said stay on crutches for 6 weeks. I have lots of swelling, icing and elevating as best I can, this break came from a motorcycle accident so I think it was my ankle impacting the ground so I have contusions or compromised ligaments etc. to go along with the minor break. I also have a puncture wound on the heal.
My question is this; how best to rehabilitate? No weight at all for two weeks, then add some weight to keep the muscles and ligaments healthy, maybe. Walking and bicycling are my life so I want to do the best I can. BTW the motorcycle is going to the highest bidder.
