Can I Start Walking Without A Cane After 5 Months Of Fracture?
Hello. Can I walk or can I learn to walk without using a stick? I have been in operation for 5 months after my broken leg
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your feelings. Certainly boring if you continue to limit yourself from daily activities. Five months of not going as usual will definitely cause your own fatigue.
But unfortunately it is not our authority to determine the handling steps for you. Learning to walk includes treatment steps, to be exact the rehabilitation stage, even though we don't know anything about your disease history. We do not know which side of the leg has broken, whether left, right or both, we do not know how severe the fracture is, whether the fracture has only been two or more parts, on what part exactly, and how have you been developing so far. So the one who can answer your question is actually the orthopedic doctor who has treated you all this time. He knows all the information and has a plan for handling you, when you will be allowed to remove the stick, and when you no longer need control.
In the meantime, you should not do much exercise without supervision, because it is feared that you will instead fall and get more injured. What you can do to speed healing is to increase protein consumption, such as those found in eggs, beef, seafood, milk, cheese, yogurt, tempeh, then not overload your feet with exercise, and control routines. So, hopefully answering your question.
