Re: Tib-Fib Fracture

i got a fractured tib &fib, due to 2 gun shots. a closed fracture, surgeon was able to fit the the bones back into place. the fib could be heal on it's own, but the tib had to be held in place with a steel plate and couple screw. the fracture to the tib was close to the ankle, and the fib was midway. it's been 'bout six and half weeks since the incident and i'm off the casts and on the crutches. i have full knee motion range, but only half for the ankle. i still have swelling at the ankle. if i can get some ankle exercise advice, i'll appreciate it. i really miss walking. thnks
