Had cast taken off and stitches taken out and air boot put on .been told can 50per cent weight bear.go back in four weeks for X-ray if ok will be able to fully weight bear. I am so happy only had the op on 7th of July .i can even take air boot off to sleep.this ankle replacement is mending miles faster than the fusion I had in 2012.the ankle has healed nicely.

    Great news. Must be a relief to be able to take the airboot off to sleep in this hot weather.
