Hi it’s me Jessie again must be getting sick of all the questions I ask I’m sorry but it’s my first broken bone and the advice and the people talking to me helps me a lot!!
I’m about 8 weeks out from a broken fibula I had to have the external fixation and then a week later I had to get plates and screws!
I went to the doctor last week for X-rays and there is still a slight crack in my fibula it’s almost healed tho you can barely see it!!! But I’m to the point where I see stories on how fast people heal and are already walking I’m scared because there’s a slight crack it’s going to be a nonunion but that’s just because of all the stuff I read probably just scaring myself has anyone else ever took a little longer to heal is this normal?!
Now only a few more questions!!! I was told I could do little exercises to help get the rom in the ankle any advice on some good ones? Also I notice where my bone popped outta my skin it still hurts a little and is still numb has anyone ever had this issue I was told it was normal! And last but not least will I ever regain full strength in my ankle again like moving it side to side like I used to before it was broken because this is definitely horrible I cant stand being reliant on everyone else!
Thanks for the advice everyone it truly helps!!!!
