Walking after ankle surgery

I had ankle and foot surgery several months ago. The doctor has given permission for me to walk with a boot on for 2 weeks and then start walking with a regular shoe. My problem seems to be a mental block. I can walk as long as I hold the walker but for some strange reason I can't walk without it. If anyone can give some advice I would be grateful.

Re: Walking after ankle surgery


If I am lucky I get to start putting pressure on my foot in two weeks. Being that I am not there yet I cant help you. However, a week after I had surgery to repair all three bones in my ankle and a dislocation they took my cast off and made me move my foot. At that time I could not move it. Right now, just one week later, I am moving it side to side, forward and backwards. If you keep working on it, you will get it. Best of luck to you!
