[QUOTE=ankle problems;5152988]Hi all,

I had Brostrom procedure on my ankle. After 2 excruciatingly long weeks of being NWB, I am going back to the doctor tomorrow and getting a walking boot now. I will have it now for 4 weeks.
I had a few questions about the experience:
- do you continue to use crutches?
- is there a lot of pain to put weight on the foot?
- how long does it take to start walking?

Thanks!![/QUOTE]

Make sure when you see your doctor you get very clear instructions on weight bearing. He might be putting you in the boot, but you still might be NWB. I had almost the same surgery and I'm NWB for 6 weeks. I know all dr's are different but 2 weeks seems really early to start any WB. Good luck at the dr tomorrow!!
