I'm 15 years old and have recently fracture my ankle (Fibula) almost all the way through the bone (15/12/17). No op needed (thank god) so just a cast for 6 weeks (until 26/01/17) when exactly three weeks later I am supposed to be going skiing, undoubtedly I have a lot of questions, please bare in mind
- I play high level rugby (how the injury happened) so I will have three physios as soon as the cast comes off working on me!
- I am trying my hardest to keep it elevated, I don't drink or smoke and I eat healthily!
- I am a competent skier and don't fall over particularly often
- If I go I will obviously been taking it easy, no wild off piste, etc
So my questions:
Is Skiing feesable?
Has anyone else been in my position and been skiing?
If you have skied after a broken ankle do you have any tips for me, things you wish you had brought on your trip, things you did to reduce pain?
Is there anything I should be doing now to increase my chance of going??
Welcome all responses :') and hopefully will be enjoying a light
