Does anyone have any similar situations and time frame? how was the fibula on the mountain?
I'm in a very similar situation, I broke my fibula/ankle in a football game 10.17.09, spent 4wks in a cast and 3wks in walking boot. my ortho doc isn't necessarily clearing me for skiing on my trip to CO on 1.9.10, but I'm already invested, and I organized it with a bunch of friends. I've got PT coming up so hopefully I can get strengthened up enough so I can at least safely spend some time on the groomers. As of now, no pain, full range of motion and walk w/o limp. I'm wondering if my ortho doc is conservative, but that's his job I suppose. Nevertheless, i'm pounding down the calcium. how's your progress? I wish you luck on the slopes. don't re-break a leg.
