broken lower fibula

Hi, broke my fibula almost 3 weeks ago (no. 11th) and need to ski to work/live this winter. I put off the first month and am now scheduling myself to start Jan 23rd, gives me about 10 weeks from injury. It's feeling O.K right now and will get a walking cast Monday. I have an air cast I'd like to use. The broke was clean right through just above the ankle from inversion. Any thoughts ? I'm eating well with suppliments and exercising as much as possible. Is this possible or do I just risk breaking it again ? Thanks for you help, Here's hoping I'm as fast a healer as I think.

Helps strengthen the kneecap mechanism by applying pressure on the tendon above the kneecap as well. This tends to reduce the forces of the quadriceps on the patella tendon and erosion of the under surface of the kneecap due to a possible misalignment of the quadriceps (Q-angle).
