Andrew2 : Broke Right Fibula (no surgery)
Diary entry posted Mon 5:33pm 16 February 2009

3 weeks ago I twisted my leg in a hole at a bachelor party at my hunting club. I was about 45 minutes from my hometown it was on a saturday and I stayed the night and got up and went home and went to the local clinic me and the doctor thought it was probably a sprain. After looking at the X-rays the doctor came back and told me I broke my fibula near my ankle and that it was a non weight bearing bone. I was thinking good I will get a walking cast on. I left the doctor feeling down.

I went to the other doctor two days later and he told me that I would be and crutches for 6 weeks and in a walking boot 4 weeks after that. They wrapped my leg up with a splint and told me to come back in a week to see if the swelling is gone down.

I went to work and luckliy I work at a desk and I could elevate it at work and had people get ice and anything else I need. I went back to the doctor a week later they said it was still to swollen and come back in a week. I went back a week later and finally I got a black toe to knee cast put on and was told to come back in 4 weeks. I am three weeks into the break right now. I feel like my leg will be better before the 4 weeks of the cast is up.

I hope that I can walk good in the nineth week because I am supposed to go turkey hunting in Texas and it requires a lot of walking in rough terrain.
