It has been three months since my fracture and eleven weeks since my surgery. I have just been given the go-ahead to weight bear using a walker. My knee and leg feel fine so far, but my foot can barely stand partial weight and it frequently swells. My PT suspects my weakened calf muscles are a large part of the problem, especially with my heel pain. We are focusing on building the calf muscle and stretching. Massage and reflexology also help the foot enormously, as does 20 minutes of elevation and icing periodically throughout the day.
