I had an accident that fractured my tibia and. Fibula. I was operated on 3rd august. And the Dr. Fixed a titanium road inside. Its over 50 days now. I was asked to take 6 week bed rest. Now on 22th sept. Was my check up day nd Dr. Advised me another, 45 days bed rest. And asked me to use my broken leg while walking with less pressure. I am feared. What precautions or exercise should I take? Can I fold my leg while sleeping.

We don't call it as bed rest. U r allowed to walk partial wt bearing on operated leg. Once your x-rays show signs of healing adequately, you will be allowed to walk full wt bearing usually around 3 months TKS.
