I broke my fibula a week and a half ago and am trying to clarify a few things. First thing first, it is a clean break and the bone is maybe a millimetre out of line if that. It is in the middle of the bone too.
I was in a half cast, basically on the back of my leg and below the foot for a touch over a week, so I was unable to move my ankle and leg and was on crutches. Then 2 days ago I went to the outpatients department and the doc took the cast off me and told me to start walking on it with the aid of crutches as it isn't the weight bearing bone.
He said that the bone should heal by itself without the cast and even with me putting a bit of pressure on it. I am concerned that doing that as well as moving my leg around will mean the bones will move and not knit together the same as if I had a cast on it.
Just hoping the bone will heal properly, if anyone has any knowledge and can assist it'd be appreciated
