Just wondering if anyone else was told to start doing a ‘walk-through’ on crutches a few weeks after surgery for a lateral tpf (9mm depression, orif 1 plate, 6 screws, & bone graft). Everything I have read says 6-7 weeks minimum NWB. Brace is now set to 90 degrees flexion but that is it until my follow-up in 4 weeks. Seems conservative on ROM & aggressive on PWB (15 pounds) though I’m happy to progress and very much respect my OS just thought I would ask you guys. Also any idea what the OS is looking for on the films that indicates it is ok to start weight bearing? Thanks so much!
