Broken Ankle Recovery Time?

Postby poledo on Mon 31/Jan/11 11:14am

Broken the bottom of my Fibula. 3 week x-ray shows that it is healing well. What sort of time frame can I expect to be back riding lightly on the bike? Cheers

I had one recently. Leg came out of plaster after 6 weeks and went into a moonboot. I was doing some very gentle riding on the road about 5 days after that. Riding was a lot easier than trying to walk on it.

So yeah, 7-8 weeks maybe depending on how bad it is.
