Can I walk on a broken ankle after surgery?

Is it true you can't walk around on a broken ankle after surgery cause my sister keeps harping on me to stay off my foot; no weight on it.

Ask the doctor who operated on you, Mary. Didn't he tell you what you could and should not do?

Your sister is probably right, but it depends on which bone was fractured and how badly.
