I fell in Aug 2010 and broke my right ankle. The first surgery plates and pins, 2nd to remove a plate due to infection under it. My 3rd surgery was to cut the ankle bones so they could be fused and a rod and nail's up through my heel. Finally now I can put weight on it. Dr said I could start walking and come back in a month.. And I can drive when I feel comfortable about that.. I asked about PT and he said I would learn just as well at home.. Ok.. BUT I am not sure HOW to place my foot! I have a rocker boot - which is hurting the bottom of my foot now.. I am using my walker but I am having problems on exactly how to place my foot since the ankle does not bend. I have been trying different ways but they don't seem right.. Help..
