i broke my fibula and tore the deltoid ligament 4 weeks ago. i had surgery 3 weeks ago to repair the bone (plate put in) and line up the ligament.
i am now in an aircast which i can take off to shower etc... and i notice that the area over where the deltoid complex is is still black and blue. according to the dr i can't put any pressure on it for 2 more weeks still, but i'm wondering how long the torn ligaments take to heal?
