Depends...: Did your ankle fracture require surgery?Are you in a cast? I assume u didn't have surgery on your clavicle and are in a sling or figure of eight ( or both).If you're ors said u cannot put weight on your ankle/ foot ( whether in a cast or boot)then walking will be difficult w/ a fractured clavicle.If this is the case a wheelchair or 'kneeling' scooter can be used; once WB in boot life is easier!
