I'm online now. Type your question here. How long will I be in a air boot cast after a trimallelor fracture and surgery?
Depends! How long depends on the the type of injury, the degree of damage, how hard it was to fix, your overall health, and your willingness/ability to follow your post-op treatment plan as well as whether or not any late complications develop. Your orthopedist should be able to give you a much better idea of what happens next, since the answers to most of these questions is clear to him/her.
I have a heel fracture. It's not displaced, don't need surgery. How long before I can start trying to walk with the boot cast?
Heel fracture. Anywhere from immediately to 8-10 wks. Sorry for vague answer but it depends on factors such as severity & location. Talk to your orthopedist. Read more...
