Hey guys I broke my fibula and tore some ligaments in my left ankle recently. Doctor says it'll be about 6 weeks before I can put weight on it. Has anyone had any similar injuries and can give me some insight to what I can expect? I'm going to ask my doctor, but any idea how long I'll have to wait before I can squat? I feel like I'm wasting away right now just laying around doing nothing. More information: It was a full break that needed a plate and 6 screws. I broke it in judo. Partner had a single leg and I tried to counter with uchi mata but he drove forward and my leg snapped because it was at a weird angle.
