Fractured Patella now out of plaster
« on: August 21, 2011, 05:12:51 PM »
Despite being told the bones weren't healing, the consultant decided I should have the cast off. It's great to be without that cast! I'm walking fairly well with crutches but am concerned that the leg is still quite swollen and the ankle swells badly when I walk. Is this normal? The consultant said I would know when I've done too much.........but so far I've been great, the pain hits in after doing a lot of walking. How much is too much?
Am seeing the PT next week

All advice welcome.............also - how long before I can drive (manual car).
