I'm a 57 yr. Old female who had never broken any body part in her life. I was attempting to get into my sisters truck as I've done a thousand times. One minute I was up, the next minute I was laying on the ground in excruciating pain. I heard the crack as I was going down. Arrived at the hospital was given a CAT scan because I had hit my head twice and an ankle x-ray. Emergency room orthopedic doc came in said I had broker my ankle in two places and I'd be down six to eight weeks. Was almost hysterical until they have me something morphine in my drip. Fronds see my foot-, it was all laying on the right. Pressure was 134/108. Had to wait for me to calm down to put the splint on. Had to set my foot using his hands as I refused the needle. Stayed in the hospital two days-was sent home. I was scared to death. Thanks God my children are grown and we live together. Scared to do anything. Splint came off in two weeks on 2/5, had surgery on 2/13, went into boot, keep it on 24/7, went to post-op on 2/26, doc said healing nicely but still keep boot on still non-weight bearing. Praying that on 3/26 I can start putting some weight on foot. I wanna go back to work but I really just want to stand and walk!!!??
