If fracture has united (which it should if the plate was removed) then careful mobilisation full weight bearing. Bone will gain full strength once screw holes are filled with bone.

Dear sender After implant removal need to be care full as bon vis not strong and may lead to some problem. The primary surgeon should have provided you the necessary information. If need further evaluation kindly contact at 0301 847 1177

screw holes makes bone weak. Its depend on quality of ur bone. U can walk on other leg with crutches or walker even right now. Partial weight bearing can be started after 2 weeks ( again depending upon quality of bone) full after 6 weeks.
