Depends: It'll depend on what his evaluation is and what the radiographs appear. If you're still in a cast, probably not recommended, since i'm guessing you mean go to the beach without casting. However, 2 months is about the time to get out of the cast and into less restrictive mobility devices. Hope that helps.

See your doc 1st: Let your doctor determine if you are ready for the beach.
