I am 8 weeks post op with a plate and pins. They initially told me 3 mos nwb, but after xrays I was able to start with 25% weight bearing in 6 weeks, 50% 7 weeks. 75% 8 weeks.
It’s going pretty well. Jane, I think they start out presuming 3 mos and then take a look at your xrays to refine it from there. I was horrified too when they said 3 months, but I showed enough bone growth so I could start early.
