Comment : Broken Tibia, fibula, and ankle: Tortola Accident
Posted by Teresa on Wed 7:10pm 26 April 2006
Hi, I am hoping to have Julia get this post. She recently had a similar facture while in the Caymen's. My break was on December 25, 2005. Not a day that I will ever forget...what a nightmare. Flew home after being stabalized at the ER and still cannot walk...five casts later. Does anyone know how long it really takes for these bones to grow back togegther? Right now it feels like NEVER, but I know it will come in time.
The article on the psychological stress is true. Especially with needing to be out of work until last week. Now I* am back, but in a wheelchair and sometimes a walker with hopping on the good leg when the wheel chair won't fit. Employer says that they don't have to have a bathroom that a wheelchair fits in because a broken leg is not a disability. times
