2 weeks ago I had an ATV accident. I had a Kawasaki mule roll onto my leg and I went to the hospital because I had thought I broke my leg. They told me it was a crush injury. The swelling has gone down a lot. I have been keeping it elevated as per required by the orthopedic surgeon. Drinking plenty of fluids also. I still can't put weight on it. Or hardly move my ankle either. I was wondering what the healing time is for something like this? I can't stand being cooped up in the house anymore lol. I'm going stir crazy
