Hello everyone , I fractured my ankle on December 17 and was told it was a trimalleolar fracture with ankle dislocation and will need surgery. I was put into a splint/cast as my foot was too swollen to operate on and since then i have been trying to find information online and all i have seen is people saying it is a really bad break and it really dampers your life, I am 19 years old with this fracture and am scared about how it will affect me, My surgery is set for tomorrow morning and am looking for information as to whether anyone has gone through the same thing , I know this is a weirdly worded question and i dont really know what im asking and to be honest i am just looking for people who have gone through similar situations to tell me how it went for them , what was the timeline of recovery ? my doctor told me for my age this is a really bad break and i cant find anyone else online that is around the same age who has had this break before , is this really bad in the longrun? will i ever be able to go back to playing sports ? or should i expect to stop playing even after im back to 100% or well "ankle will never go back to 100%" according to my doctor. Im scared
