I am 3 weeks post surgery, 1 plate and 8 screws, both tib and fib broken and ankle dislocated.
Just relaxing in a hammock on the first crisp fall day and WHAM, the bolt comes out of the tree and the hammock falls. I am still in total disbelief. Anyhoo, my stiches were taken out 1 week ago and I was moved from a splint to an air cast with no weight bearing. It is great to be able to shower and see my ankle.
Here's my questions.... am I just a big baby? I get so sad and overwhelmed by my situation and how every single day brings new pain and new challenges. My family is amazing and they have been sacrificing so much to care for me, I feel so guilty.
Second question, did you experience an intense tingling ( think foot in ice water feeling)? Even the bed sheets are painful.
