Ive been following this forum since I had a bad trimalleolar fracture 3 months ago. Simply twisted my ankle walking on wet grass. Crazy so much damage can happen so easily. Had ORIF surgery, cast for 7 weeks and have been in moonboot for 4, gradually increasing WB, but still very slowly, and short periods on crutches. Have been using knee scooter to get around mostly.
I thought things seemed to be improving...if slowly! And then 2 days ago I fell off my scooter landing on my bad foot, and quite sure first metatasal is broken, as its severely painful. Am waiting for a CT scan appointment to confirm. I wasnt wearing my moonboot...
I just can't believe it. Was just talking about how should be able to walk crutch free in a few weeks!
I am numb with disbelief, if I need to have a cast again I dont know how I will cope.
Has anyone else had a new break from falling? Misery loves company :-(
Has anyone insisted on not having a cast, and managed with just moonboot?
