    Hi looking for advise on my Lisfranc injury.

    A little back story, I fell from a fence late December 2020, the fence paling snapped at the top and I fell to the other side and my foot got caught in a bowed out plinth at the bottom.

    It resulted in 3 toes being dislocated from the middle of my foot (sorry can’t remember the medical terms) but it was the big toe and the two next to it.

    It has been six months since I did the injury I have had two surgeries since, one to put the screws, plates and artificial ligaments in then the second to remove the metal but leaving ligaments in.

    I have been allowed to put weight on through my cam boot and crutches as tolerated as of a month ago, it is really painful and my stability is pretty bad. My foot still goes a dark purple when I’m upright which then I’ll put it up which usually helps.

    Anyone have advise what I should be doing at this stage as my doctors still don’t want me doing exercises yet or driving…. I was hoping maybe I could be swimming or jumping in the hydro pool by now. Need to get back to work ASAP.

    Is there any reason that you can't be doing that? You need to move. Movement is crucial, within the limits of pain.

    Not really sure, the orthopedic doctor said to hold off until my next appointment which is next week
