Comment : I know how you feel
Posted by Bobbi on Wed 8:55pm 28 March 2007
I broke my fibula in two places on February 8 by falling down a flight of stairs. I actually heard it break but I didn't want to believe it - so - I walked out to my vehicle, drove an hour home - yes - it was my right leg - and walked (rather more like hobbled) into my mom's house and proceeded to call the hospital. I got much the same news as you the next day - however, the ortho decided not to do surgery and I waited for three weeks - NWB in an Aircast. On March 8, I had emergency surgery to put in plates and screws because it did not heal. Now - I am NWB for five weeks more (at least) still in the aircast with no real prognosis. I too felt like it was the end of the world - but - my employer has let me continue my work from home. I live in my recliner because the bed is not comfortable and if my leg is down for more than 10 minutes - it swells. Trust me. It will get better - but it will take time - and the doctors won't always know. Hang in there.
