Looks like you and I are in about the same place. I’m 5 weeks post injury and did not require surgery. Based on what my doctor has told me, I don’t think that it is too early for you to start PWB and working toward FWB. The next time I see my doctor, I will be 7 weeks post injury and 6 weeks since I first saw him. I’ll get another set of x-rays at that time to check on the healing progress and he says there is a 50-50 chance that I’ll be cleared to start PWB and PT at that time. It seems that there is a big range in the type and severity of the fracture as well as individual differences in healing rates so then there is a pretty big range in when people are cleared to start weight bearing again. I’m trying hard not to get my hopes that I’ll be one of the fast healers but this waiting is really hard to take!
