PS to last post

I have been in touch with a lovely helpful lady at the fracture clinic at the hospital (another very clean, efficient and friendly hospital). She has translated what the consultant said. 20% means I can rest my foot on the ground when standing but whilst walking I should bear almost all my weight on my other leg and crutches. In the third week I can start taking more weight on my leg, building up to 75% which is almost normal walking BUT never doing it without the support of my crutches. Simples!

I am glad you have found out how much weight you can bear. I can't imagine how frustrating it must be to have to sit around all day doing nothing. I would hate it and I am normally lazy. Someone more active must really hate it!

Hoping you get fully better soon.

Thanks for the sympathy Lynda. You are right, it is hugely frustrating but as a wise friend says - this too will pass.
