Ankle fracture rehabillitation

Hi, i fractured my ankle 4 weeks ago and am currently wearing an aircast. My leg muscles are already going soft and I still have 1 month to go. What exercises would be safe to do in the meantime while I''m wearing the air cast?

Dear Shell,

it is most important for the fracture to heal - once that is healed you have plenty of time to strenghten your muscles. Regard fracture healing as the prime objective at this time, too much activity may compromise the healing of the fracure
