Immobilization: LoriF, You may need a longer period of immobilization either in a boot or, more strictly, in a short leg cast if these symptoms are still bothering you, especially with weight bearing. Alternatively, if the pain is gradually getting better then some formal physical therapy may help your rehab.

Immobilize: You may need to stay immobilized for up to 8 weeks. If still having symptoms therapy may help you with your gait. If the fracture itself is still hurting surgery may become an option depending on how big the fracture fragment is.
