Comment : Yikes - Extra Fractures???
Posted by Diane_M on Wed 7:57pm 5 January 2005
Not good news to hear. We might have to allow you some extra time to heal before we declare a "winner" of our healing race. We can let Diana_W be the referee!! I'm surprised your OS didn't tell you about all of your fractures or point them out on the x-rays. As far as I know I "only" have the tri-mal, which is bad enough. Extra spiral fractures don't sound good - perhaps that's why you were casted for so much longer than I was. They didn't put plates/screws in the spiral fractures, right?
You are right on - heel lifts do suck!! I'm still doing them every day, though. I can't wait for the day that I can do them on just my bad ankle - I ain't there yet!
I've been back at work for 4 months now. It helps that I have a desk job. I don't know what I would have done if I couldn't go back to work for several months - I'd go batty and probably drive everyone else batty too!
Heal well. When you do go back to work take it as easy as you can and be extra careful. Happy wedding planning - is the actual date set yet?
Take care, Diane
