  • DO: Eat Fruit and Vegetables

After surgery all you might be thinking about is having a McDonalds or 5 but your diet will be a massive factor in the speed of your recovery.
Eating lots of fruit and vegetables will give you the vitamins your body needs. I'd especially recommend pineapple and coconut!

  • DON'T: Eat and drink junk food!

Caffeine, salt and alcohol are the worst things imaginable for bone recovery. They stint growth and dehydrate the body. 
Try to substitute pop with fresh juices and coffee with decaffeinated drinks/green tea.

Your body will thank you for your sacrifice!

  • DO: Have lots of Dairy!

Dairy for obvious reasons is extremely good for bone recovery. Vitamin D is essential and dairy is packed with it.

Be weary though, dairy can be full of salt! Try to drink skimmed milk and eat plenty of fat free yoghurts!

  • DON'T: Disregard Your Doctor's Advice

Every broken ankle will be different and that's the same with the doctor and their recommendation.

They will know your body better than you do so if your told to not walk on it for 6 weeks don't! There's many cases of people rushing their recovery and failing!

  • DO: Keep Active

I know it might sound impossible! But it's important for your mental and physical health that you're getting exercise!

Move your legs, do sit ups, if you have a pool you can get yourself a waterproof sock which will allow you to move your leg much easier through the water.

  • DO: Take it Easy

Don't try and rush your recovery, don't push yourself when you get to the weight bearing stage. Make small steps every day, go swimming, do your physiotherapy but don't be afraid to say if you're out of your comfort zone.

I hope this article has helped you with your recovery!
