    I fell down two carpeted stairs and broke my ankle in July as well!

    Im pretty much back to doing everything I did before although some days still experience a little numbness

    I was at ortho this week to have stitches removed after having stabilizing screw removed 3 weeks ago and he told me it can take almost a full year to get full feeling back in the foot

    But Im off all restrictions He said to do as much as I want or as much as the body allows
