Re: week after ankle/foot surgery

My friend had his ankle shattered and has a plate and screws, no tendons or ligaments moved though but major surgery. It's been almost 5 months and he is just starting to drive (manual transmission) and got rid of the cruthes about a month ago. I'm afraid it's a long rehab process, good luck with this.
