Re: Broken ankle - Fibula - Tibia
Assuming the x-rays show that the bone has healed well, you will probably be told to "transition" back to walking. This might mean partial weight bearing, putting a little bit of weight on the foot while still using the crutches to support yourself.
You will probably be using some other support. You might be prescribed a special boot called a CAM walker, or you might have a smaller brace or ACE bandage. You will also have to do exercises to strengthen your leg and ankle.
