Long road ahead...

Posted by Debbi on February 10, 2016 at 2:25pm 0 Comments

I was beginning my new journey of fitness and health on Dec 16. I was doing great...the best I had ever. I started running 2 weeks later after my morning workout. On Jan 12, I decided to run and take a new path... I didn't see a 2ft embankment and fell. The initial impact was painful but never did i imagine the damage I had done from that small fall. My experiences that day was hell! Had to call an ambulance and was taken to a hospital. That hospital experience was horrible. Ti was in so much… Continue

Two Years Post Tib/Fib Fracture and Ankle Dislocation

Hi everyone,

Well, my two year anniversary has come and gone!

I saw my surgeon exactly two years to the date after I slipped on the ice and ruined my ankle. He took some x-rays and usual, and the big news is that there is some narrowing of the joint, so looks like post-traumatic arthritis will be in my future! I was advised to avoid any impact sports (hello, swimming pool), avoid inflammatory foods, lose weight if I can, and once the pain starts, I can go in for an arthroscopic…

Shooting Burning Pain Behind Knee

Posted by George Pachner on February 5, 2016 at 12:37pm 0 Comments

Hello, I am one month post op after breaking my tib/fib at my ankle. A plate and screws were utilized and the Anesthesia folks used a double dose nerve block behind my knee as well as a general. Out of the blue I will get a terrible shooting pain originating behind my knee and shoots up the back of my thigh. Anyone else experience this? My next issue is this remove able boot cast that smells like a fish factory. I spray it with gold-bond and air it outdoors daily. I wash my foot and apply…

Hey all, I needed somewhere to rant and to people who would understand what I'm currently going through. So today I had my third 6 weekly doctors appointment. so I have been touch down weight bearing since the New Year which then lead to using just one crutch then ditching both crutches so I have been weight bearing in my boot for the last two weeks. I went to my appointment today feeling hopeful that I will be out the boot and in a normal shoe.

How wrong was I???

My doctor then spoke… Continue

broken ankle

Hello.......   Well it all started back on Feb 18 2014. One of the worst snow and ice winters in Ohio since 2004. School was in session for my youngest daughter at the high school up the street. I needed a tire put on and she agreed that after school she would go to walmart and have it put on. It was my dayoff and I needed to speak to the apt manager of our apts here in mt orab ohio.

"That's neat, I didn't know that you could make them waterproof. My friend had to cling-film hers so I'll definitely try to pick up some tape :) I'll put a picture up when I'm done :) "

"Sorry to hear of your injury. The cast will be fun. Plus like you said you get to doodle on it. Don't let them put you in an ugly cam boot. You have a choice. Just tell them you'll take it off if it's not a real cast. They now have…"

Freshly Fractured Ankle

I had never damaged a bone before I fractured my ankle at school yesterday. I tripped down some steps and my ankle twisted and collapsed underneath me. They iced it and treated my grazes before calling my mum to take me to A&E. I was nauseous and shivering from shock in the car, and we had the heater on full.They examined my ankle but the swelling stopped them from feeling what they needed to so they sent me for an xray, it really hurt. At this point both the doctors, my mother and myself…See More
