I was assaulted in late January -- double (both sides) left ankle fracture. The outside bone was broken into about 5 pieces, the inside just one break.
I have 10 screws and a metal plate forever -- in essence it's casted from the inside. as Baker illustrates above.
I am almost walking now, can get around very slowly with just one crutch. I'm expecting to walk normally (no limp) by end of summer, hope to be able to go hiking as before (i.e., uneven surfaces) by the end of the year.
This is an ankle, tho, not a foot. I had no support, could not bear weight for 2 months. Spent six weeks on the couch with my foot elevated.
Nevertheless, I am going to my first r 'n r bar show tomorrow, The Dirtbombs. Whadda recovery!
