I had a fractured left distal fibula just 2-3 inches above the malleolus. I work in my two feet as nurse, so running around is essential. Now, my fracture was clean, transverse and slightly internally displaced. The two choices I had was;
1.- Let it heal on its own with the high risk of re-injured or in the most extreme case. fractured again.
2.- get an ORIF, and get it fixed for once and for all.
I too needed to work, but unfortunaly, the nature of this injury will require that you take some time off for properly healing to occur. It is wonderful idea that you are taking CA supplements.
But I will take it easy, since skying requires to put so much pressure in your ankles. I wish you that by now, you have fully recovered.
