Re: Spiral Fibula Fracture

It's a late answer but maybe, if posted over the internet will help other people.
I have suffered an undisplaced fibula fracture above the ankle while skating and my doctor has adviced not to cast the leg but to wear a walking boot from the very begining. I got an "Air inflated" one and after one week i feel ok. Of course i do not put weight in the respective weight at all, but I go to the office and hope in a faster recovery that after casting.
