Ask your doctor...: Ask the surgeon who did the surgery. He has the best idea as to the extent of the original damage and the procedure that was done to correct it!

Talk to your surgeon: Best to discuss this with your surgeon since he/she is the only person that knows the extent of the injury and how it was put back together.

Healing fibula: Any time one has any kind of surgery, the best person to answer questions concerning that operation is the doc who did the surgery. Check with his office concerning your discharge instructions & timetable for advancing walking.
