soooo 3 weeks ago I slipped down just 3 steps and ended up breaking my right ankle in 3 different places!!! a week after that I had my ORIF surgey. Surgery went great- my doctor is awesome- my foot seems to be healing well! I guess the hardest part thus far is the feeling of being completely helpless, and not being able to do things on my own. I'm a single mom of a 6 yr old and I am having to rely on friends and family to bring her to school, pick her up etc... (thank GOD for my mom!!)
Well today for the first time one of my friends came and picked me up ( I HAD TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE, and only God knows when I'll be able to drive again 😦 ) and we went for lunch. I was out for a couple of hours, sitting down of course. but when I got home my foot was so swollen and stiff, not painful just very uncomfortable. I guess just being out and not having my foot elevated was just too much too soon??? I guess I'm just feeling pretty defeated right now. I Just want to return back to my normal life 😦 Any advice?? Does it get better? My doctor gave me a timeline and has told me what to expect but ugh. This is terrible. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy!!
