Re: broken ankle

Though you may be young you human tissue heals at a consistent rate. If your doctor told you to be non-weight bearing for 6 weeks he meant it. Whether or not you are "able" to pu weight on the cast does not mean a darn thing. It just means that you could delay the healing process or mess up the healing fracture. Something you don't want to do at such a young age as you will have ankles problems for a really long time. Do what your doctor says and don't try to rush things...
