Might as well start shopping for a new one as you won't be getting it back.

I broke my ankle too, but as soon as I got the cast off and boot on, I was able to drive. Get well soon!

Cant you drive with your other leg? If you have a manual use your good leg to control throttle and brake and use a cane to control the clutch and one hand to steer.

I pictured someone driving like that! Too funny! I needed a good laugh.

Went to the VA and, yep... it's a clean break. Doc is saying 6 to 8 weeks.
It is the right ankle so I cannot use a gas pedal at all. I am thinking that after about three weeks I can take off the boot to drive but even with that, I will need to use her Honda Pilot because:
1: It is easier to get into
2: It is an automatic.

So, she now gets my Wrangler...for at least the rest of the summer.
