Hello. I fractured my kneecap. It is not displaced so surgery is not required. I was put in splint. The next day, I wasn't in pain much and was able to walk without crutches. Is it ok to put a little weight on it so soon? Or should I stay off of that leg?

Fractures and motion. This question needs to be directed to your treating physician. They probably gave you directions not to put any weight on your leg. Usually, a non-displaced fracture will heal in 6-8 weeks if you have immobilized the fracture in a brace or splint. However, it depends on the type of fracture. Call your doctor and see below. Good luck. http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=A0052.
