I'm recovering from a broken ankle, sports injury. Had an Aircast on for 6 weeks I could walk around in and now I'm down to a splint-brace. No pins or plates, got lucky there.
Search around on the web a bit just to make sure your doctors didn't miss anything and learn about your physical therapy options. It's so weird having this small weak leg in the meantime.
Good luck and a speedy recovery!
