I broke my ankle nearly 14 weeks ago now breaking both bones, having it pinned and plated and lots of ligament damage. After surgery I was in a boot for 8 weeks and have been 'boot free' for over 4 weeks now but still really struggling. The top of my foot is so swollen I cannot wear shoes and am still on sick leave from work. Although I am waiting for physio, is there anything I can do at home to speed up the recovery as I am desperate to drive!
