I had a good news. My doctor told me that I could follow an “early weight bearing” protocol that will allow me starting exercizing my foot and ankle with the help of a special orthosis. I was really looking forward to get that news since it will release me from my cast and allow me to sleep better, and take bath.
Couple hours after getting the “ok” from my doctor, I had my cast removed and bought the orthesis. I thought the orthesis will be more like a walking boot but it was just a simple orthosis placed on top of my foot that keeps my foot from going over 90 degree. It is made of hard plastic, and it is stapped around my lower leg, my heel and my foot. I am not familiar with the medical vocabulary (specially english medical vocabulatory, since my primary language is french) but i think the proper term for this orthesis is “brace”.
So now, I have a bunch of exercise in order to find back mobility in my ankle and foot. My next appointment with the physiotherapist is in 2 weeks.
