Hi, i wrote on here a few weeks ago and had some really helpful replies so thank you. My issue is basically i broke my ankle badly 5 weeks ago. I have broken the fibula in 3 places and dislocated the tibia. I had an op to pin and plate it. The plate is 10 inches long so it's left quite a wound. I am due back at the fracture clinic on the 17th to see what happens next but been signed off work until the 24th. I am a TA so constantly on my feet. My issue is guilt! Work have been amazing but i cant help feeling a bit of a fraud being off for so long with 'just a broken ankle' My GP said my injury is something that would normally be seen in an RTA, not slipping diwn stairs. Does anyone have an idea of what will happen on the 17th? I. E will i get a boot or just be left to walk? I am still completely nwb but how much longer for and am i right to feel guilty about work?
Sorry for the long rambling post but it's so nice to discuss things with others who have gone through it.
