I am feeling glad to answer your query and I will try my best to guide you as precise as i can.
Look as per your current treatment plan you are going in the right direction and your doctor is following a right trearment regime. Surgery should be the option only in multiple fracture injury
. If you are having a single fracture then dont worry at all, you are on right track. My advice to you is to follow the guidances given by your doctors and please dont try to walk without cruthces. Make your foot as stable and relaxed as much as you can as excess of strain can lead to hell of the situation. Wear the air cast boot atleast for a month which help the bone remain stabilize and in new bone formation. From the very next day when your doctor advice
you to remove the boot, immediately start Physiotherapy
from next day to get rid of stifness and restricted joint movement as long stabilization of joint contributes in joints stifness. To regain normal joint movement and functions, exercise and Physiotherapy is the one & only solution. For further queries you can contact me any time in between 9 to 1 pm daily. Hope you soon get well ! All the best.
