Comment : My DH is broken too
Posted by Joann Marvin on Fri 9:49am 10 June 2005
My husband broke his leg falling off a ladder the beginning of May. Fortunately for us it happened at work. He, however, didn't think he needed to go to the doctor. Men can be soooo stubborn sometimes. I took him over his objections. He has 2 split compression fractures of his right tibia. He had to have a bone graft, plate, and 6 screws.
How are you dealing with his depression? Mine has such a sense of helplessness and so I am trying to find things he can do that make him feel useful. I bring him the laundry and he folds it on the coach. He has also mastered our stairs with the crutches not and will occasionally start the laundry for me if I bring it to the laundry room. The first few weeks were the hardest!!
Hang in there.
