Hi Christinia, I am was non-weight bearing for three months because of the type of fracture of the TPF. – cat6. Being non-weight bearing for that long depends on the fracture. I just recently started partial weight bearing, and my OS said if I have any pain while PWB then ease up. Being non-weight bearing for this long, the leg starts to atrophy. I wish I knew early on is to to glut and thigh squeezes because that will help in the support when you do start walking.

One thing my OS always told me is to keep moving the ankle.

The only thing that gets me through day by day is God. Without him and my faith in him, I don’t know how I would get through these past months and days. Honestly, the 3-months for me flew by and I hope they fly by quick for you.
