Hi! I broke my fibula, dislocated my ankle, and tore ligaments +tendons back on Dec. 11. (Right Ankle) I am currently 7 weeks POST OP and I am struggling. I am still NWB, due to the trauma of the injury, the bones have not yet to fuse. I am looking at another 6 weeks before I am probably able to put my foot down. I am having so much trouble because I am extremely depressed, and I can’t seem to have the urge to do anything. I just sit all day and cry. I always think that my injury will never get better, and I will never be able to walk again. I am only 20, but i’m not sure how the body will heal at this age, but I was a college student, who had to take the semester off to recover. I was just wondering if I could get any advice on this. I am trying my hardest to look at the end of the tunnel, but i’m so worried that my summer will be ruined (6 months from now) I just want my life to be normal! Please help!!!
