moon boots after ORIF for ankle fracture

by Joyce
(Nice, France)

I fractured my ankle a week ago and had ORIF (lateral malleolus) with a plate and 6 screws. My deltoid ligament was ruptured, but not repaired surgically. I live in France and I was told 6 weeks in plaster, non weight bearing.

Could I use a Moon boot? How soon could I weight bear if I had a Moon boot?

Where could I get a moon boot in France? I could get a prescription, but what companies make the best?
