Taking longer than I thought
After 3 months of complying to the strict “rules” set out by my orthopedist-no weight bearing, continue full length cast “prison” therapy I was told on January 12th, 2015 that my leg needs at least another month. Same therapy. I will continue to comply but it’s tough when you’re not able to drive, have no income because I can’t work and still completely dependent on others. Momentary lapse in my life. Only 4 months plus rehab I should be feeling lucky. I do in some regards but can’t help to feel frustrated.
Thankful I was wearing my AP Toucan boots. My leg would have been severed so once again I preach ATGATT.
Unless you can read x-rays my break may not look that bad. It’s there and I did not have surgery because it was set after my accident really well and put into a cast. I have diabetes which could be interfering with healing. Taking calcium and vitamins. Come February we shall see if I can get out of the fiberglass and start to rehab. As many have said roads won’t disappear and I will be on two wheels soon enough.
