Hi, I was wondering what these two abbreviations meant.  Thanks.
6/10/09 TPF Class 1, 3 or 4, you pick, and then there's the left leg
6/11 immobilized
6/17 surgery 2 plates and 9 screws
7/1   stitches removed
7/6  home
7/21 OS left foot, nwb until 8/18
8/3  NWB either leg
8/18 FWBAT left leg; 40lbs. max on right
9/9  FWBAT as tolerated, and I'm really walking!

Hi,

I think they would mean partial/full weight bearing as tolerated.

Good luck with your recovery!
