Direct impact to medial side of left ankle from slipping on wet stairs. X-ray does not show fracture, however foot doesn't plantar flex. ?

5 weeks ago, spiral proximal fibula fracture causing the majority of ligaments in ankle to tear/rupture. Began partial weight bearing. Full weight?

Need to clarify: A proximal fibular fracture would be just below the knee, a distal fracture would be at or near the ankle. The tibia is the main weight-bearing bone of the lower leg so you may need a few more weeks at least. The partial weight-bearing may also be due to the ligament injuries. ...Read more
