Re: Fractured fibula

On 26th May 2007, I fractured my right fibula and there is a mild displacement. Surgery has been performed on 31st. May . Metal plate and screws have been fixed in there permanently.
How long does it take to put weight on the operated leg?
What type of physio therapy will I have to undergo.
Could you please indicate some exercises that I could start doing in bed before I put weight on the operated leg.
