I broke my fibula right above the ankle bone the morning of my birthday ( no less) while working out. Snapped it right in half doing lateral jumps. I did this May 12, so it’s been 29 days to date. No surgery bc the bones are perfectly aligned, but wearing this stupid bootcast ( which I’ve grown to really hate), and using crutches daily. I’m only partial weight bearing.
My foot is normal colour when elevated and feels ok. When down to the ground, immediate swelling and it goes purple. I have muscle atrophy now in my calf ( significant ), that I’m concerned I’ll never get back.
I googled physio excerises last night, even though I don’t see physio until after June 21, but i just wanted to prep. Funny how those excersies look impossible to do at this point. I have No ankle definition at all, massive purple foot when down and how loosing calf muscle.
Please tell me I’ll be back to normal someday.
I’m so sick of laying around and doing nothing.
It’s so debilating.
Also, I’ve had two babies with no drugs, and this break was comparable to the pain of that.
