[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?


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!!
