I was hoping there would be some people out here that could give me advice who have maybe been in my situation. So I have a TPF I’m about 9 weeks out from my injury.It was a non-displace fracture and no surgery required. I had xrays done about 3 weeks ago and the doctor told me to start weight bearing in another 3 weeks (so 12 weeks total after injury). He told me to see a physiotherapist which I have started doing. So my questions are when I start weight bearing do I still wear my brace? How quickly do I add the weight? Will my physio tell me? I have no more doctors appointments as I am visiting in the USA and have no insurance and they will not see me anymore as already owe $12,000. Any adivice about my next phases of recovery would be so helpful. Thanks all.
