Hi All, I have a good story!

Posted by Lauren L on July 27, 2014 at 7:36pm 0 Comments

Hi Everyone,

I know reading the internet is full of worst case scenarios, and I so appreciate your blog entries.  I want to promote a best case! I had a really good experience. I fell while playing baseball in the neighborhood 6 weeks ago and immediately went to the ER.  I got into surgery 2 days later; unfortunately I had just started a new job so this was awkward, but I am in consulting and I had a trip from Atlanta to Chicago to host a conference and present HR topics in 4 weeks.…

Fractured Ankle, Tibia, and Fibula

Posted by Yulanda C. Ellis on July 25, 2014 at 1:45am 0 Comments

First of all, I'm so happy that I found this support group.  I truly need the support.  I fractured my ankle, tibia, and fibula(comminuted) on January 18, 2014 at Kabooms from skating.  I'm 44 years old.  I had surgery on January 24, 2014 . Nine screws and plate was placed in my right leg. I was confined to the bed for almost two months .  My cast had to be removed due to compartment syndrome.  My leg was protected in a softer wrap for four weeks.  I have been on several types of pain…

It has been four days since being given the all clear to come out of the orthopaedic boot and start the programme of rehab to get back up and around.



Mobility is so much easier when you can put both feet to the ground, and following the Dr's proclamation on Tuesday, I've been trying to get active.



This week I had my first physio appointment which went well. The physio is fantastic and set challenges - walking with two crutches was no problem and apparently I've managed to… Continue

Six week checkup...

Posted by Martin R on July 8, 2014 at 1:44pm 1 Comment

Six weeks have passed since the little slip that led to such a change in focus, balance and footwear options.



This Sunday I fought my fear of the outside world and arranged to meet family at a local restaurant. I had to get out and did the journey with my two aluminium sticks (They've been a great support) and headed off. Upon arrival, gravel car park, negotiated fine, cobbled paving.... Pah, move on! I made it to a nice table outside, sat in the sun and had my first meal out since… Continue

Knee weakness?

Since I've had my surgery to get a rod inserted in my leg, my knee has felt rather weak, any exercises I can do to strengthen it back up? Not having physio, those nurses are crazy lol.

I pretty much shattered my fibula on the 20th of June. Had surgery on the 29th and here I am wondering what comes next? How long will I need these meds? And work will I ever have the energy to get through a day. And walking it feels like they are going to make me wait an eternity. Yup, I'm pretty anxious to get my life back.
