Comment : I feel for you...
Posted by Angel on Sat 3:20pm 30 September 2006
I fell and broke my left leg back in 2004(one of 5 times). I broke both bones and had an external fixator put in. It wasn't real pleasant to carry around but I managed. I got lots of encouagement and sympathy when I was out and about. That was my first semester for graduate school so it made for an interesting couple of months. I cleaned mine w/peroxide and kept bandages around the hole sites. I also had a brace to immoblize my leg.
Infection set up in my foot around one of holes so I had to go on Keflex for a month. Having it taken out was very interesting. My doc would not knock me out and told me to take 2 Vicoden before I came to have it taken out.
Word of advice...Take lots of meds and request
they give you a sedative if at all possible before that time.
Best of luck to you. It gets better and you will be walking in no time.
