Fib Fracture and ligament tear.

I had deltoid reconstruction and fibula surgery almost 2 weeks ago. I'm in a walking boot and have only taken it off to shower. I was told to sleep with it on. When can i sleep without it?

This really varies person to person, injury to injury. Your doctor should have gone over the time-frame for the length of the boot? I had to wear mine 24/7 for over a month - then down to when I was up out of bed. Good luck!
